Business groups challenge EPA on greenhouse gases

WASHINGTON (AP) - Several prominent business groups have joined a growing list of organizations and states challenging the federal government's finding that climate-changing pollution from cars, power plants and factories is dangerous to people.

The Environmental Protection Agency said in December that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases endanger human health, setting the stage for future rules restricting such emissions.

At least three states - Texas, Virginia and Alabama - have challenged the EPA finding, claiming it is based on flawed science. The National Association of Manufacturers filed a challenge this week, joined by groups including the American Petroleum Institute, National Association of Home Builders and the Corn Refiners Association.
