    Arguing that a program's funding is misplaced is one thing but to completely misrepresent basic facts is a failure of the committee chair.

    Committee On Oversight & Government Reform
    Chairman: Rep. Darrell E. Issa
    From: Regional Haze & Visibility | MassDEP
    That this is a purely aesthetic visibility program:
    That it is undetectable to the human eye:

    Very much a typical Republican. The rich man's dollar is far more important than the health of the citizens of this nation.

    Obama would have helped move America towards the goal of Clean Air had he signed the DOHA Agreement, but he didn't.

    Very much typical Democrat. The rich man's dollar is far more important than the health of the citizens of this nation.

    The President should have signed that. And we should be doing a lot more to prepare for the inevitable consequences of a warming atmosphere. Unfortunetely, there are few who understand science in either party.

    There is a far greater chance that lack of prepartion, and continueing on the same path that we are presently on, will torpedo the economy in the near future, than that adaquete preparations for that future will.

    Hancock and Prudential blurred by haze and the individual buildings of the financial district are indistinguishable. That is not a clear sky and the color is that of the exhaust of a poorly tuned city bus.
