The state of California has been waiting for the Environmental Protection Agency to rule on an application for a waiver for its greenhouse gas emissions rules since late 2005. The EPA has stated that they plan to rule by the end of 2007, but for some reason California doesn't want to wait any longer. The state has said that if the EPA doesn't rule by Oct. 24 they will sue.
Several environmental groups, including the Sierra Club, have now said they will join in on the lawsuit. Several other states have also decided to adopt the same rules that a group of automakers are fighting in court. Recently a federal judge in Vermont ruled against the automakers and said the rules that would require a thirty percent reduction in greenhouse gases by 2016 could move forward.
