On NPR’s All Things Considered John Walke, Director of NRDC's Clean Air program, criticizes the Bush Administration for its biased and inaccurate characterization of the Clean Air Act in an EPA report… On CBS Evening News John mourned the federal appeals court rejection of the Clean Air Interstate Rule, one of the few environmental advances made under the Bush Administration…
