Bush removes scientists from decision making to protect wildlife
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration on Monday said it plans to let federal agencies decide for themselves whether highways, dams, mines and other construction projects might harm endangered animals and plants.

The proposal, which does not require the approval of Congress, would reduce the mandatory, independent reviews that government scientists have been performing for 35 years. Developers welcomed the plan, while environmentalists derided it.

Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne said late Monday the changes were needed to ensure that the Endangered Species Act would not be used as a “back door” to regulate the gases blamed for global warming. In May, the polar bear became the first species declared as threatened because of climate change. Warming temperatures are expected to melt the sea ice the bear depends on for survival.

I really didn't think, after that debacle of foreign policy yesterday, that I could have less respect or more contempt for our President. Sadly, he in these respects, he's an overachiever.

Re: Bush removes scientists from decision making to protect wildlife
the federal government and those behind it are actively and openly working against the citizens of the states and nature itself. brazen. consistent. and unrelenting for the foreseeable future no matter who they install in office.

to say that we citizens are blindly victims to many a diabolical plan is a severe and gross understatement
