The reason for the Bush administration’s refusal to set caps on greenhouse gas emissions from cars has been debunked with an important decision
The Bush administration, closely intertwined with the energy and oil industries, has not only waged war over energy policy, but has also consistently refused to make commitments to reduce greenhouse gases. With astonishing audacity, scientists were prered to revise reports on climate change (muzzling of U.S. scientists), companies were spared in favor of the economy, and efforts were made to prevent climate warming caused by human activities from becoming a political ie for as long as possible. Recently, Bush, after being seen to be on the sidelines with climate policy as well, has come out in an open letter as a champion of climate protection, which he claims to have taken very seriously since the beginning of his term in office.
However, despite arances to protect the climate, the Department of Environmental Protection (EPA) and the White House had refused to impose caps on greenhouse gas emissions from cars in the Clean Air Act, which was introduced in 1970. It has become clear that the Department of Environmental Protection has done very little at all to implement the requirements of the law, as noted in a June 2006 GAO report.
