The article presents several initiatives embarked by the U.S. Barack Obama administration in 2009. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) changed the decision of former President George W. Bush and permitted California to govern carbon dioxide from tail pipes. The EPA also neglected the plan of Bush to exempt some 3,500 facilities to report chemical releases in the Toxic release Inventory.
