In a press release, Cuomo noted that oil refineries contribute substantially to global warming, posing grave threats to New York's environment, health and economy. The attorney general specifically referenced the president in his press release. "As long as the Bush EPA continues its blatant violation of the Clean Air Act and its shameful refusal to control global warming pollution, I will continue to fight them aggressively on all fronts."
Cuomo's suit charges that EPA violated the Clean Air Act when it refused to issue New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for controlling global warming pollution emissions from oil refineries.
Joining New York in the action are California, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, as well as the District of Columbia and the city of New York.
