One More Victory for the Earth : More Needed

On April 2, 2007, the Supreme Court ( 5-4 vote) agreed with NRDC and our partners that carbon dioxide and other global warming emissions are pollutants under the Clean Air Act.

And in a stunning rebuke to the Bush Administration, the court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency ALREADY has the authority to start curbing those pollutants, which are wreaking havoc with our climate.

Go to http://www.nrdcaction.org/gwtakeaction and send a message telling your Senators and Representative to pass a bill that cuts global warming pollution 25 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050.

It will take overwhelming public support to pass the kind of bold legislation that our planet so desperately needs. But if we can prevail over the Bush Administration in the Supreme Court, then anything is possible on Capitol Hill.
