Whitman Speaks

Noah Adams talks to EPA Administrator Christie Whitman about two recent Bush administration decisions: to rescind arsenic standards put into place in the final days of the Clinton administration, and to reverse a position on carbon dioxide regulations. Whitman says that both decisions were based on balancing needs -- in the arsenic case, health and affordable water; in the carbon dioxide case, energy demands and greenhouse gas limitations.
