White House tried to silence EPA on emissions


Recommended Posts

White House officials sought to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from submitting a proposed rule that would limit greenhouse-gas emissions from new vehicles, agency sources said Wednesday.

White House tried to silence EPA on emissions - Agency official quit after administration refused to read e-mailed proposal

Congressional Democrats and several public health and environmental advocates said the fact that EPA changed its proposal under White House pressure will delay implementation of a national cap on carbon emissions and affect upcoming rules on fuel economy standards for automobiles.

I am not even surprised anymore. As Dr James Hansen says: we should prosecute climate change liars!

Bush: Solar Plants Threaten Precious Desert Lands

Faced with a surge in the number of proposed solar power plants, the federal government has placed a moratorium on new solar projects on public land until it studies their environmental impact, which is expected to take about two years.

Seriously? Wow.

It's astonishing how distorted a sense of timing it seems possible to have.

Considering that almost ALL of the new solar projects are on private land that has no effect at all. Any projects on public land would have to be Federal projects and the Congress is so screwed up they could not get the bill passed in two years.
