Can MN possibly get in on some of this action? Please? Do we need Pawlenty's approval, or can Mike Hatch go ahead on his own?
And what does it say about how focused I am on school that it took me using wikipedia to confirm I got Mike Hatch's name right to discover that there's a gubernatorial election this year?
WASHINGTON - Ten states fired a new legal salvo at the federal government Thursday in a long-running court battle over global warming and pollution from power plants.
The states, joined by environmental groups, sued the
Environmental Protection Agency over its decision not to regulate carbon dioxide pollution as a contributor to global warming.
New York, California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin filed the lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
The states, led by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, want the government to require tighter pollution controls on the newest generation of power plants.
