Is Bush out of office yet? Hasn't he done enough damage to the United States and to the planet? Apparently not.
The Bush Administration wants to water down the Endangered Species Act by allowing the executive branch to determine whether animals and plants face endangerment by infrastructure.
The Bush administration wants federal agencies to decide for themselves whether highways, dams, mines and other construction projects might harm endangered animals and plants.
New regulations, which don't require the approval of Congress, would reduce the mandatory, independent reviews government scientists have been performing for 35 years, according to a draft first obtained by The Associated Press.
And why does the administration want to do this? Because of that pesky, fictitious rumor called global warming.
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.
It's hard to make ever-increasing amounts of money when you have to comply with rules about not destroying our planet.
The draft rules would bar federal agencies from assessing the emissions from projects that contribute to global warming and its effect on species and habitats.
I hope this insane, illogical measure does not pass. And I hope someone sit Bush and Cheney in front of a Wii until January. No more plotting about how to make more money while making Americans suffer. Just play like good boys until you get evicted.
