Schwarzenegger Defends EPA

22 Apr 2011  |   Damien Shirley

Former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) published an Op-Ed earlier today criticizing the recent attacks on the EPA.

Schwarzenegger criticizes the various bills currently circulating on Capitol Hill that would block the EPA from regulating carbon pollution (a major contributor to climate change) and other forms of air pollution.

Schwarzenegger notes that, when he first came to California in the 1960's the state had exceptionally poor air quality; due to regulations such as the Clean Air Act, CA's air quality is significantly improved today.

The Governor states that the attacks on the EPA "all amount to the same thing: dirtier air."

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson posted Schwarzenegger's Op-Ed to Twitter, calling it an "early Earth Day gift" and a "[g]reat op-ed."
