Environmental Progress!! Earth-4, Polluters 0

Two weeks ago the Senate rejected the assault on clean air pushed by Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), the Senate's leading climate denier, which would have permanently blocked the life-saving Mercury and Air Toxics clean air protections.

Monday was the end to the public comment period on the EPA's proposed climate pollution limits for American power plants.  2.25 million comments were collected. The Dirty Energy Lobby will fight this rule, but all this grassroots support will take them aback.

Tuesday, a federal appeals court upheld EPA's climate pollution emission standards, rejecting four legal challenges that had been filed by industry groups and several states' attorneys general.

Late Friday, just before breaking for the July 4th Recess, Congress once and for all passed the RESTORE Act as part of the Surface Transportation Extension Act. The RESTORE Act dedicates 80 percent of the Clean Water Act fines from BP and other parties responsible for the 2010 gulf oil spill where they are needed most to restoring the fragile Gulf Coast environment and local economy.

As the energy efficiency and clean air industries continue to grow, I can see there being a strong lobbying effort on the other end of it.
