EPA Global Warming Finding "Supported by the Underlying Science"

Witch hunts seem to be all the current GOP has money or time for. For example, Senator James M. Inhofe (Okla.) — one of the most outspoken climate change deniers in the world — requested a review of the EPA’s greenhouse gas endangerment finding by the Office of Inspector General (IG) recently.

– “EPA met statutory requirements for rulemaking and generally followed
requirements and guidance related to ensuring the quality of the supporting
technical information.”
– “…the TSD was a highly influential scientific assessment
because EPA weighed the strength of the available science by its choices of
information, data, studies, and conclusions included in and excluded from the TSD.”

Where and How? New Carbon Footprint Study Shows Location, Lifestyle Matter

The “tool” here is the “carbon calculator” made available for free on the Cool Climate Network website.
