Bush, bad steward of the land

Environment worsened under Bush in many key areas, data show:

"Over the past 30 years, the nation's air and water have become dramatically cleaner, but the steady improvement has stalled or gone into reverse in several areas since Bush took office, according to government statistics."

and from the montana standard:

The ‘‘Clear Skies'' initiative of 2003 is a blatant misnomer and a gift to coal-burning power plants. By the year 2020, ‘‘Clear Skies'' will allow 478 tons of mercury into the environment; the Clean Air Act, which it replaced, would have limited those emissions to 204 tons.
