The Bush administration on Friday formally rejected California's bid for a waiver from U.S. law to set its own tailpipe emissions standard to reduce global warming.
The Environmental Protection Agency released a regulatory notice signed by Administrator Stephen Johnson, canceling California's plans to impose a state law that would have forced automakers to reduce emissions by making cars that achieve sharply higher gas mileage beginning next year.
The decision also affects 18 other states that wanted to adopt the measure.
TVNL Comment: The Bush administration is clearly the enemy of the people and of the planet. They are simply the business agents and principles of the oil & military industries. They are our enemy and we, the people, should fight them with no holds barred!
