🚨 BREAKING: EPA sets a climate/GHG regulation threshold. bit.ly/39sqJ1N

Can be regulated: Power plants. End of list.

Can’t be regulated: Oil/gas production; refineries; industrial boilers; iron & steel; others; in total, 57% of stationary emissions
Here's the chart from EPA's final rule. Setting a 3% threshold puts all but power plants under it.

EPA argues in the grand scheme of climate change that additional regs on the below-3% industries simply won't make a big enough impact on future temperatures
Notably, I don't believe EPA ever formally proposed specifically setting a 3% threshold.

It said last year it would launch a whole new rulemaking. But today's rule instead commandeered a coal plant reg (and stripped out any change to the actual coal plant limits)
