In the wake of the EPA's rejection of California's attempt to regulate the emissions of greenhouse gases, we're left asking, for lack of a more eloquent phrase of indignation, WTF?
Now this LA Times piece states that the staff of the EPA has turned on its chief (who they claim ignored their input).
Especially vociferous is California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. You can watch and listen to his announcement of his intent to sue the US EPA here. He and a number of other speakers are placing the blame for the bill's rejection somewhere between D.C. and Detroit. Could they be suggesting that a connection between politics and the auto industry is stifling progressive environmental legislation? Zounds.
