"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which begins regulating greenhouse gas emissions Jan. 2, announced Thursday that it will propose industry-specific standards next year. EPA officials will propose standards for new fossil-fuel power plants in July and for petroleum refineries next December, finalizing them in May 2012 and Nov. 2012 respectively. Those facilities are the two largest industrial sources of greenhouse gases, together accounting for nearly 40% of U.S. emissions." (12/23/10)
