The author reflects on the changes made to the environmental regulation in the U.S. He mentions that as carbon emission became the main issue in the Congress, sooner there will be requirements to monitor and tally all carbon emissions from a facility, new rules for mining companies and electric utilities and a discharge limit of water. He states that these changes to environmental regulation will soon lead affected industries to go after Congressional Committee or a federal agency.
