Just today a federal judge has ordered that the Bush administration issue two scientific reports on global warming. A group of environmentalists had sued the White House for failing to produce the documents which delays any action on their part.
Judge Saundra Armstrong is apparently not as easily bribed by large energy companies as the ones in the White House. The Judge ruled that the Bush administration had violated a 1990 when it failed to meet the deadline for and updated U. S. climate change plan and impact assessment.
As usual the Bush administration took an arrogant approach by stating that it had discretion over how and when it produced the reports... a argument that the Judge rejected... good to see there is still a little common sense here in this country.
This is a big win for the plaintiffs which include the Center for Biological Diversity, Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace.
"It's a huge victory holding the administration accountable for its attempts to suppress science," said Kassie Siegel, an attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the plaintiffs that filed suit in Oakland federal court in November.This administration has constantly lied straight to the American public face... perhaps it is time for a change. What is your say?
