Bush Administration and U.S. EPA Under Scrutiny
Posted: December 16th, 2008Author: All4 Staff
The Bush Administration and U.S. EPA continue to be scrutinized in the press. Most recently, on December 7, 2008, the Philadelphia Inquirer published the first of a four part series of articles titled “Smoke and Mirrors – The Subversion of the EPA.” The articles can be accessed at www.philly.com/epa. Of particular interest is the second article in the series, published on December 8, 2008, which examines several air pollution-related court rulings including the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and New Source Review (NSR). The article takes a critical look at several rules that have been challenged by both industry and environmental groups, with characterizations of the overturned rules as “reckless” and “arbitrary” by ex-U.S. EPA officials and representatives of environmental groups.
