This paper sets forth a blueprint for achieving greenhouse gas emission reductions under the Clean Air Act. The author hopes this paper will help spur both faster action by the administration under current law, and support for removing the existing Clean Air Act exemptions from ACESA. The Clean Air act provides the successful foundation for the transition to a clean energy future. Any new climate bill must incorporate and build upon this foundation, rather than discarding it in favor of an entirely new, untested system, placing all our eggs in one precarious basket.
