REBELLION AT THE EPA

REBELLION AT THE EPA…This seems like kind of a big deal. From a news release put out by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility:

In an unprecedented action, representatives for more than 10,000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency scientists are calling on Congress to take immediate action against global warming, according to a petition released today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). The petition also calls for an end to censorship of agency scientists and other specialists on topics of climate change and the effects of air pollution.

Since President Bush is committed to staying the course on not doing anything substantive about global warming, it’s hard to believe this will have much effect. But it’s a pretty compelling marker of just how shameful his administration’s inaction has been.
