Markey: EPA found global warming a danger, vehicle emissions should be limited


Congressman Ed Markey, chair of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, has fired a preemptive shot at the Bush administration.

While the White House Office of Management and Budget continues to apply the red pen to EPA's "advanced notice" on possible greenhouse gas reduction strategies, Markey noted today that EPA had ALREADY recommended action before its initiative was shut down by the White House late last year.

And now the White House is busy gutting the new EPA strategy. As Yogi Berra once put it, "This is like deja vu all over again."
