    Guess he's going for one quick swipe. I wonder if he'll be excommunicated, like Richard Cizik basically was. :razz:

    No... they didn't say he did more to protect the environment than anyone. They said it was the largest MARINE conservation effort. Certainly to be admired and I applaud him for it. Too bad he also just proffered a rule that eviscerates environmental efforts on land to help his corporate buddies.

    If you want to know what President did more for the environment than any other, it would probably be Richard Nixon, who started the EPA... and in terms of animal conservation, probably Teddy Roosevelt.

    Same for the dead zones that have just become a fact of life along the Oregon coast. Our actions in adding chemicals, whether fertilizers to our waterways, or CO2 to our atmosphere, are coming back to haunt us at the most basic level, the food chain.

    That should be an eye opener for people and it seems it is not. It makes one wonder if the most simple life forms cannot survive this enviroment why do people think they can survive in such an enviroment.

    The EPA is fucked up and should be dissolved.

    Wrong, absolutely wrong. The EPA should be headed by a real scientist and empowered.

    Environmentalists should be kissing Bush II's ass.

    There is no finer way to protect the environment than to make the world's economy falter.

    Of course, the greenest of the Greens would prefer that about half the world's population simply shuffle off and die, but they seldom mention that hidden agenda, because it isn't good politics to let on that that's really their agenda.

    True and it should not be one that has already been bought and paid for by lobbying chemical companies and industrialist.

    There are so many feasable ways to cut down on pollution if we did not have so many of these greed mongers in leadership positions.
