The following statement is from David Baron, managing attorney at Earthjustice's Washington, D.C. office:
"This administration is fiddling while the planet melts. A full year after the Supreme Court's ruling, EPA continues to stall. Meanwhile, the threats from global warming are mounting at an alarming rate. So today, we're asking the circuit court to put an end to EPA's foot-dragging.
"The delay here is really inexcusable. According to a House committee investigation, a detailed EPA proposal to address motor vehicle greenhouse gases was sent to the White House last December, but has not seen the light of day since. There simply is no justification for this delay. The time to act on global warming and save our planet is now."
