When “cap and trade” failed to garner enough support in the Senate during the last Congress, it became clear that the only way the Obama administration would be able to execute its preferred energy policy would be to have the Environmental Protection Agency regulate carbon emissions, a possibility that EPA administrator Lisa Jackson hinted at from the first days of the Obama administration.

If that fails, Sen. James Inhofe said he will keep trying to attatch it to every bill that comes before the Senate.
UPDATE: McConnell’s office emailed to say that Democrats are likely to put off the vote again until after recess.
