US Update

11th December 2006

As California introduces yet another measure designed to reduce minerals-related pollution (this time from deadly hexavalent chromium emissions), Bush's EPA continues striking out in a contrary direction.

It's "reviewing" air pollution standards in a manner which critics say will increase the opportunity for biased political (pro-indsutry) decision-making.

And it's contemplating removing lead from the list of forbidden pollutants - apparently because recent controls have reduced lead poisoning dramatically.
