A Senate hearing this week ostensibly to review the Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA) budget request is likely to turn into a broader debate on global warming, with Republicans seizing a chance to challenge the administrations push to regulate greenhouse gas emissions in an open forum.

Senate Republicans, along with a few Democrats, are trying to keep the EPA from moving forward through the Congressional Review Act, which enables Congress to block federal regulations. Republicans on the committee are likely Tuesday to try to build a case in support of that effort.
To regulate heat-trapping gases, the EPA had to find that greenhouse gas emissions endangered human health and welfare. The endangerment finding relied in part on a United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report that said humans were causing global warming.
