EPA Sued over Lack of Action

Exactly a year ago the Bush administration in the US was taken to the Supreme Court over the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) lack of action over global warming. The court ruled that carbon dioxide is a pollutant and that the EPA should regulate it.

The ruling included the fact that the states had the right to sue the EPA for lack of action and they have now exercised that right. Yesterday a number of states and environmental groups (almost 30 in total) sued the agency in an attempt to make it comply with the court order.

Federal regulation moves one step nearer.
