"The attorneys general of seven Northeastern states announced their intention to sue the administration...for its failure to regulate power plant emissions of carbon dioxide, the main global warming gas, as required by the Clean Air Act. One of several reasons President Bush had advanced for not moving more forcefully to control carbon dioxide [is] that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant as defined by the Clean Air Act.... The lawsuit says this is poppycock.
