Global Warming Harmful to Your Health

In yet another rebuke of the Bush administration, the new-look Environmental Protection Agency has released a proposal stating that “global warming is endangering the public’s health and welfare.” The findings, The Washington Post reports, could serve as the foundation for nationwide limits on emissions. Business leaders are attacking the report—a direct response to the Bush administration’s rejection of much of the research surrounding global warming—saying that if enacted, emissions limits would slow down or completely stop construction, including projects tied to the economic stimulus.
