Global warming on trial

Last Wednesday the case Massachusetts v. EPA reached the Supreme Court of the USA. A combination of 12 states and many environmental groups are arguing the Clean Air Act gives the Environmental Protction Agency the power to regulate carbon dioxide from motor vehicles. Oil and car industries are denying that global warming is a proven fact. The Bush administration has refused to introduce legislation to regulate CO2 emissions from new motor vehicles. The stakes are huge. See the NRDC website.

I can't believe the US has become such a farce as to argue in their highest court whether CO2 is a global warming gas or not! What a waste of energy.

I see the Bush/Cheney gang of cowboys are loaded in their favour within the Supreme Court anyway. How corrupt is that.

Global warming has been hitting countries across the globe. Wether we like it or not it is the reality that we are going to face.

But there is still hope, if we just make one step at a time to solve this problem.

Going for Hybrid and Biofuels could be a great factor in reducing pollutants.

For 100% emission free, Electric Cars is the ultimate solution. Lets go for green and help save the planet.
