Bush Administration Continues To Screw The Environment

The Bush Administration, in its race to be the worse administration in the history of the world, wants to build power plants outside our national parks. The EPA, again, is going against what the EPA's own scientists say, again. Did I mention, "again"?
The new rule changes how pollution levels in parks are measured -- instead of frequent measures, the new rule "would average the levels over a year so that spikes in pollution levels would not violate the law." Just a common sense fix, you might say. But as one environmental advocate explains, "It's like if you're pulled over by a cop for going 75 miles per hour in a 55 miles-per-hour zone, and you say, 'If you look at how I've driven all year, I've averaged 55 miles per hour.'"
