Six Ex-EPA Chiefs Slam Bush on Global Warming
Posted on Jan 18, 2006
AP: WASHINGTON - Six former heads of the Environmental Protection Agency—five Republicans and one Democrat—accused the Bush administration Wednesday of neglecting global warming and other environmental problems.
“I don’t think there’s a commitment in this administration,” said Bill Ruckelshaus, who was EPA’s first administrator when the agency opened its doors in 1970 under President Nixon and headed it again under President Reagan in the 1980s. | story
