Attempting to regulate the temperature of the planet by readjusting the mixture of gases in the atmosphere would be the most ambitious project undertaken by human beings. Nothing that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has done previously matches this task, but perhaps the closest analogy in EPA's history is implementing thl! 1990 Amendments to the Clean Air Act (CAA). The lessons learned from EPA's implementation of the 1990 Amendments can provide valuable insight for the implementation of future climate change legislation.
