Global warming on trial
Last Wednesday the case Massachusetts v. EPA reached the Supreme Court of the USA. A combination of 12 states and many environmental groups are arguing the Clean Air Act gives the Environmental Protction Agency the power to regulate carbon dioxide from motor vehicles. Oil and car industries are denying that global warming is a proven fact. The Bush administration has refused to introduce legislation to regulate CO2 emissions from new motor vehicles. The stakes are huge. See the NRDC website.
