Administration disavows its own global warming report.

Today, the EPA published its response to the April 2007 Supreme Court ruling in Massachusetts v.

In letters attached to the document, however, administration officials “disavow[ed] the document’s conclusions.” The Wall Street Journal reports:

Brad Johnson at the Wonk Room notes that EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson decided to attack the work of his own staff in addressing climate change, concluding that the Clean Air Act is “ill-suited for the task of regulating global greenhouse gases.”
