President Bush goes down swinging… at the environment

During his last few weeks in office, President Bush is doing his best to make sure we remember how much of an enemy of the environment he is. This week, he enacted policy changes that "would let federal agencies make decisions on planned projects without a full scientific assessment as to their likely impact on the environment."

Republican supporters of the move are deeply concerned that expert assessments are slowing down development projects and driving up costs.

Costs? If a project wipes out a species, how much does it cost to fix that?

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
