A coalition of EPA scientists from across the country is petitioning Congress to take action to stem the human-created causes of global warming, RAW STORY can report.

"We are writing to protest the lack of progress in addressing global warming," says a letter affixed to the petition.

It goes on to point out that, "the federal government is using primarily voluntary and incentive-based programs to reduce the bulk of emissions," in the United States, and that the EPA "could do more" to stem the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

According to a summary released in conjunction with the petition, the EPA labor union coalition represents over 10,000 U.S. EPA environmental scientists and other experts.
