From the WSJ:
Democratic senators on Tuesday asked the Justice Department to investigate whether the nation’s top environmental regulator made false statements to Congress when he testified that his 2007 decision to block California rules governing automobile greenhouse-gas emissions was made independently.
Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) and two other lawmakers also called on EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson to resign. The calls bring to a head a building battle over whether the White House interfered in environmental policy making, including in the California rules.
Anyone with two brain cells to rub together know that Bush’s EPA has done nothing that will better the cause of clean air, clean water or just healthier human beings. Its all been political.
By rejecting California’s request for a waiver under the Clean Air Act — the first time the agency has ever refused to grant such a waiver — the EPA administrator effectively blocked any state from regulating vehicle greenhouse-gas emissions.
Earlier this year, Mr. Johnson told the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee that “this was solely my decision based upon the law, based upon the facts that were presented to me.” But a former EPA official told the committee that the EPA chief had planned to allow California’s rules to take hold in some form, but changed his mind amid pressure from the White House.
Fucking liar. Fucking corporate pig.
The firing of the USA Attorneys was the downfall of Alberto Gonzo Gonzales Now, the asshole that heads the EPA is looking the fool with the dismissal of Mary Gade, regional administrator of U.S. EPA Region 5 which is based in Chi-town. This woman has been fighting Dow Chemical for years m’dear reader..and she gets kicked to the curb by the Head of the EPA, that wonderful individual named EPA administrator Stephen Johnson. Johnson is a prick of mythic proportions:
Gade told the Tribune she resigned after two aides to national EPA administrator Stephen Johnson took away her powers as regional administrator and told her to quit or be fired by June 1.
You son of a bitch. Can you actually be so stupid as to think no one will notice this bullshittery? Are you that fucking retarded?
Gade has taken on Dow forevah! She has fought the good fight against one of the the major top five polluters and murderous thugs in the world. And this is how the Bush Administration rewards her. Ass-friggin-holes. Remember Bhopal people…
