Pundits such as Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity routinely push forward conservative agendas in their daily shows on Fox News. What is the main issue that this article addresses? This article discusses the pressure the EPA is putting on various states with its threats to regulate carbon dioxide emissions. There is an interesting dynamic at play here involving the greater good of society and individual state interests. The EPA wants to regulate carbon dioxide because it is a potential threat to humans in the form of escalating global climate change. However, some politicians are weary of how this might affect there own states’ economies, which is a legitimate claim. It is important to also understand the conclusion the author draws. I don’t believe the article takes a stance one way or the other, I do believe his reason in writing this was to show the issue is complex with arguments for both sides. Claim 1.)
