Now the highest court in the land has joined with citizens, states, businesses and scientists to call upon this Administration to move quickly to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

I urge this Administration to quickly respond to the court’s ruling by providing leadership, not excuses, and to begin to develop an action plan to finally combat global warming.

As chairman of the Senate’s clean air subcommittee, I will work hard to ensure the Environmental Protection Agency implements new standards that reduce the amount of greenhouse gases polluting our atmosphere.
