At least the author catches the lie

Here is an article where the headline is true, even if inside the main character is caught lying. And the writer catches it, even if it is only with the headline.

E.P.A. Expected to Regulate Carbon Dioxide

So, we all expected that, a global warming alarmist is in charge of the EPA. Here is the lie:
Lisa P. Jackson, the new E.P.A. administrator, said in an interview that she had asked her staff to review the latest scientific evidence and prepare the documentation for a so-called endangerment finding. Ms. Jackson said she had not decided to issue such a finding

This is in regard to a Supreme Court order to determine if the substance we exhale is a pollution. Seems to me that the answer would be no, but then again, if we breathe to much of it, we die. Hmmm, but if there is not enough of it, all the trees die...but trees make oxygen, no oxygen, we die. See, this is harder than it seems folks, it is a good thing she is not ready to make a...oh, wait a minute, read further in the article:
If the environmental agency determines that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant to be regulated under the Clean Air Act, it would set off one of the most extensive regulatory rule makings in history. Ms. Jackson knows that she would be stepping into a minefield of Congressional and industry opposition and said that she was trying to devise a program that allayed these worries.

“We are poised to be specific on what we regulate and on what schedule,” Ms. Jackson said. “We don’t want people to spin that into a doomsday scenario.”

Poised to be specific, on something she is not ready to suggest. Interesting to say the least.
