Can EPA Cut Carbon Emissions As Much As the President Wants to Cut Its Budget?

Over at The New Yorker's website (here), Ryan, Lizza notes the discontinuity between President Obama's professed desired to make a significant impact on the climate change problem and the budget he just sent Congress, which offers to cut the EPA's budget by 3.5% (compared to the current year). No doubt, Congress will take him up on that offer, or even double-down on it (and, given historical precedent, we might expect the President to cave).

So much for the soaring rhetoric about the importance of tackling climate change in the President's State of the Union address.
