The article focuses on the final rule issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on June 3, 2010 to address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It states that EPA is implementing the rule in two phases wherein the largest GHG emitters will be required to obtain permits during the first phase of the rule's implementation while permits for smaller sources of GHG emissions will be deferred on the second phase. It adds that lawsuits are to be expected against the regulation of the rule.
