WASHINGTON (AP) - A White House document says EPA regulation of the gases blamed for global warming will have serious economic consequences throughout the U.S. economy.
The document is a compilation of opinions from numerous federal agencies about the EPA's finding that greenhouse gases are a danger to public health. It was released Tuesday by Republican senators.
The nine-page document says that if the EPA proceeds with the regulation of heat-trapping gases, factories, small businesses and institutions would be subject to costly regulation.
The document also says the EPA failed to explain adequately how it determined that greenhouse gases endanger human health and welfare.
