A Polluter's Feast

If this doesn't piss you off I don't know what can.

From a Rolling Stone article:

A Polluter's Feast: Bush has reversed more environmental progress in the past eight months than Reagan did in a full eight years

What can you say about the environmental record of an administration that seeks to test pesticides on poor children and pregnant women? That argues in court that a dam is part of a salmon's natural environment? That places a timber lobbyist in charge of the national forests and an oil lobbyist in charge of government reports on global warming? That cuts clean-air inspections at oil refineries in half, allows Superfund to go bankrupt and permits the mining industry to pump toxic waste directly into a wild Alaskan lake?

Only this: It's about to get even worse.
