Former EPA Chiefs Bash Bush

Six former chiefs of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, who gathered this week to celebrate the agency's 35th birthday, took some time off to bash the current administration for its myopic position on climate change.

“We need leadership, and I don't think we're getting it,” said Russell Train, EPA chief under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, talking about global warming. “To sit back and just push it away and say we'll deal with it sometime down the road is dishonest to the people and self-destructive.”

According to reports only  the current chief administrator stood up to defend President George W. Bush's record.
