Enviro Groups Challenge VA's EPA Lawsuit

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Two environmental groups are challenging Virginia's legal action to block federal regulation of greenhouse gases.

The Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of Wetlands Watch filed a motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington late Thursday supporting the Environmental Protection Agency's findings that greenhouse gases are dangerous to people.

The groups say Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli's challenge to the EPA findings is an "unwarranted stall tactic" that is a dangerous distraction from the impacts of climate change.

Cuccinelli is asking the EPA to reconsider its conclusion that carbon dioxide and other emissions contribute to dangerous global warming. He's also asking the federal appeals court to review the decision.
