UnfilteredNews Virginia sues the Environmental Protection Agency to change its position that greenhouse gases are a danger to public health and cause global warming because the agency relied on flawed and “doctored” research.
The Virginia-Pilot RICHMOND The Environmental Protection Agency should reconsider its conclusion that greenhouse gases are a danger to public health and global warming because it relied on flawed and “doctored” research, Virginia’s attorney general said Wednesday.
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli defended the petitions he filed against the agency in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington questioning the EPA’s ruling. Cuccinelli was among several utility and energy companies, as well as think tanks, that filed petitions before the deadline Tuesday.
Cuccinelli, who on the campaign trail last year questioned whether people have contributed to global warming, received $238,846 in donations from energy and natural resources interests.
At issue for Cuccinelli is the EPA’s reliance on information from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The credibility of the panel and some prominent climate researchers in England has recently been questioned.

“It’s political science, not real science,” Cuccinelli said.
