EPA- Bush Fails

Updated: 7:14 a.m. ET Jan. 19, 2006
WASHINGTON - Six former heads of the Environmental Protection Agency — five Republicans and one Democrat — accused the Bush administration Wednesday of neglecting global warming and other environmental problems.

“I don’t think there’s a commitment in this administration,” said Bill Ruckelshaus, who was EPA’s first administrator when the agency opened its doors in 1970 under President Nixon and headed it again under President Reagan in the 1980s.

“We need leadership, and I don’t think we’re getting it,” he said at an EPA-sponsored symposium centered around the agency’s 35th anniversary. “To sit back and just push it away and say we’ll deal with it sometime down the road is dishonest to the people and self-destructive.”
Wonder how Rove will put the spin on this one? It'll be tough since 5 of the 6 are Republicans!

I just don't understand Bush's thinking. He's ignoring the signs of global warming so that businesses don't have to spend $ or slow down in order to comply to stringant standards. But really, what's more costly in the long run?

If Bush doesn't like what he hears, he just ignores it. What's the betting that the 5 republicans will be accused in someway of being got at by the dirty democrats, or that it is unpatriotic to care about the environment when boardrooms are crying out for more profit!
