EPA and the polluting electric power companies: the Supreme Court can't tell them apart!
We’ve been saying for years that the Bush EPA has been working on behalf of the polluters. And now the Supreme Court apparently agrees.
See the amusing letter to the clerk of the Supreme Court from a lawyer who works for electric power companies with a long history of fighting against pollution controls (The Utility Air Regulatory Group).
She wants to correct a reference in the High Court’s docket, which listed her as representing EPA.
No wonder the court was confused – EPA and the polluter types really are pretty much the same since the Bush crowd came into office.
This is a case about whether the federal government should take action against greenhouse gas emissions.
Massachusetts and others lost this case in a lower court and are asking the Supremes to review it.
