EPA cut corners on global warming “endangerment” finding

Did the EPA properly follow federal regulations when it determined that greenhouse gases like CO2 are causing harm to the public? Not according to a very significant report of the Office of Inspector General, which concluded the EPA ignored the federal Data Quality Act and cut corners on the peer-review process when it issued its now infamous “endangerment” finding – a finding which forms the legal basis for global warming regulations. The OIG report addressed only the procedures involved, not the science itself. But with the credibility of global warming science already taking a beating after the U.N.’s Climategate scandal, these new questions about the EPA only add more serious doubt to pronouncements about the climate.
