Congress v. The Environment: Look Out, EPA

Jim DiPeso, executive director of Republicans for Environmental Protection, has a nice blog post describing the latest machinations of the GOP (and coal state Sen. Jay Rockefeller) taking aim at the EPA.  Gingrich wants to abolish the agency that has helped clear the air and clean the water.  (He's apparently nailing down the all-important "don't need to breathe or drink" demographic).

DiPeso also schools Rep. Fred Upton and Wyoming Sen. John Barasso for their rolling over for global warming polluters.  

And the 112th Congress is just getting going.  Better hold on.  The next two years are going to be a bumpy ride.
