The White House in December refused to accept the Environmental Protection Agency’s
conclusion that greenhouse gases are pollutants that must be
controlled, telling agency officials that an e-mail message containing

ruling that required it to determine whether greenhouse gases represent
a danger to health or the environment, the officials said.

order by releasing a watered-down version of the original proposal that
offers no conclusion.
