States oppose fed blocks on global warming cuts
WASHINGTON -- States and Congress jousted with the Bush/Cheney Environmental 'Protection' Agency (EPA) on Friday for an OK to regulate and cut global warming pollution.
EPA is shamefully dragging its feet for industry, so as to block state action and solutions on global warming.
Meanwhile, global warming is helping make the southwest hotter and drier, and the Colorado River's Lake Mead reservoir could be dry in 10 years.
Eight Governors, including Janet Napolitano (D-AZ) and Bill Richardson (D-NM) are also battling a bad bill in Congress by Rep. Boucher (D-VA) that would block states' rights to cut global warming pollution.
Too many feds talk smack about wanting state and local control, but again show they only support when it favors big polluting corporations.
