California Sues EPA, Again.

After suing the Environmental Protection Agency earlier this year, California Attorney General Jerry Brown is at it once again over the agency's lack of regulation over greenhouse gas pollution from ships, aircraft, and construction and agricultural equipment.
“Ships, aircraft and industrial equipment burn huge quantities of fossil fuel and cause massive greenhouse gas pollution yet President Bush stalls with one bureaucratic dodge after another,” Attorney General Brown said in a statement. “Because Bush’s Environmental Protection Agency continues to wantonly ignore its duty to regulate pollution, California is forced to seek judicial action.”
The only action taken by the EPA was an “Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” earlier this month. Brown called it "pathetically weak" as it did not once say greenhouse gases endanger public health or welfare.
