Well, Patty isn’t the only one calling out Johnson over his “justification” for denying the clean car waiver. A number of articles took the EPA administrator to task, and this fantastic blog by Lisa Heinzerling, the Georgetown professor who wrote the plaintiffs' briefs in the Supreme Court case on auto emissions and global warming, really helps put this decision in its proper context. This scathing editorial from the New York Times, and the fact that unionized EPA workers are withdrawing from a cooperation agreement with political appointees who supervise them really shows the depths to which this ill-founded decision has taken the agency.
The lines on this particular fight seem so stark, and the stakes so high; it ‘s like something out of a Hollywood legal thriller—especially when “The Governator” himself is right in the middle of the action. So we helped our friends over at SaveOurEnvironment.org with a fun little “movie trailer” to let activists keep up the pressure on states that haven’t joined the lawsuit. You can head right over to the action page to check out the video created by the good folks at Free Range Graphics (you’ll notice our green minivan design—The UCS Vanguard—plays a significant supporting role…).
So go check it out and pass along the fun…and the outrage.
