WH: Obama Favors Legislation on Global Warming

Monday, 07 Dec 2009 04:21 PM

 

A White House spokesman says President Barack Obama still prefers legislation on climate change and that Monday's EPA declaration on greenhouse gas dangers was done in response to a court-ordered timetable.

Robert Gibbs told reporters at his daily briefing that the EPA's statement was set into motion by a 2007 Supreme Court decision. He also said that Obama "still believes the best way to move forward is through the legislative process."

Gibbs suggested the timing of the EPA announcement and the opening of a major climate change conference in Copenhagen was coincidental. He said the timing of the agency declaration "is based on the fact that the first step" of a court-ordered regulatory process was being completed.
