Green hoopla dominates start of EPA hearings on carbon rule

Hundreds of supporters of the Obama administration's flagship climate change rule turned the grounds around the U.S. EPA headquarters into a green carnival this morning as the agency opened the first public hearings on the proposal in Washington, D.C. The departures of two veteran EPA leaders will leave eight of the agency's 14 key political posts vacant. Most of those empty seats have nominees pending in the Senate, but the slow pace of confirmations coupled with controversy surrounding EPA's policies mean it could be a while before the agency is operating at full strength again -- if it happens at all before President Obama's term ends.
