States Sue EPA Over Global Warming

Seventeen states and the District of Columbia are taking the EPA back to court. They want to force it to take action against global warming.
It was a year ago that the Supreme Court criticized the Bush
administration for not acting on the issue. The justices ordered
the Environmental Protection Agency to do something about carbon
dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
But Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley and others
complain the EPA has not come up with any new regulations. They
accuse the agency of failing to deal with the dangers of global
warming, and demand action within 60 days.
There's no immediate reaction from the EPA.
