Lisa Jackson, the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is in Copenhagen touting the agency’s recent ruling that greenhouse gases are a danger to human health and therefore subject to federal regulation under the Clean Air Act.
According to a report in the L.A. Times, Jackson received a standing ovation on Tuesday night from participants in a closed-door administrative briefing for environmentalists and other non-profit groups.
Jackson told delegates at the Copenhagen conference that the EPA ruling was not meant to supplant climate legislation now before Congress, but to work in tandem with it to meet the Obama administration’s goal of an 80% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
“This is not an either/or moment,” said Jackson. “This is a both/and moment.”
