Sen. Boxer Asks EPA for Documents on Global Warming Dangers

Sen. Barbara Boxer, (D-Calif.), chair of the Committee on Environment and Public Works, has asked Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Stephen Johnson to release every document related to the agency's finding that global warming poses a danger to the public, according to a July 8 press release.

Boxer's action stems from findings that the Bush Administration censored the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report on the dangers of global warming and has stonewalled further efforts to reveal the endangerment finding.

She also asked EPA to immediately release a strong advance notice of proposed rulemaking on global warming emissions.

If these requests are refused, Boxer said Johnson should resign.

If the information is not released, Boxer said she would use every means available to her committee to obtain it.

Boxer said she will hold a hearing on July 22 to present the most recent evidence of the serious danger posed by global warming.
