Daily Roundup: June 8, 2010

Crude Words: As reports come in of large (but uncertain) amounts of oil spreading below the ocean’s surface, Obama said he wants to "know whose ass to kick." New York Times and Greenwire

Political Action:
The White House threatened a climate-bill veto in response to the Republican effort to insert conditions that would hamper the government’s ability to regulate emissions. Nancy Pelosi enacted a strict deadline for Democrats to craft oil-spill legislation, and Ken Salazar and 10 Atlantic-state governors signed an agreement to develop wind power. Yahoo! News and Greenwire

Burning Bush(’s Legacy): The EPA withdrew the Emission Comparable Fuels (ECF) rule, one of Bush’s midnight moves to remove regulatory costs by reclassifying fuels that would otherwise be considered hazardous waste. The rule was overturned on the basis that pollution produced by burned ECFs act the same as those produced by burning oil. EPA
Reason to Howl: A federal judge denied a request from Alaska officials to legalize the killing of wolves in a Unimak Island refuge. Anchorage Daily News

Holding Their Own: Coral islands can sustain their size or even grow as a result of rising ocean levels and climate changes, suggests a new study. Los Angeles Times
