I just read the first, lets see, two of those things hes done that are so bad. Maybe we could mix a wee bit o' fact in there. ANWR was struck down. We are NOT drilling in ANWR. I'm not even reading the rest of them. Maybe the reason the air quality is so low is because your head is ..... :-) have a good one

I firmly disgaree with most of Bush's pilicies on the enviroment but some of those "facts" are included simply for padding reasons just look at the first one.

Quote:

1. Allowing a higher level of arsenic in drinking water




LOL, my god your president's trying to poison you and the enviroment. The actual amount allowed has actually fallen from 50 ppb (thats 50 parts per billion ) to 10 ppb. The EPA monitors this in mg/l and the maximum level allowed is 0.01 mg/l.

Quote:

5. Allowing dangerous levels of carbon dioxide emissions




Dangerous to who? The public (I can see the evidence of mass CO2 poisoning cases already)....

Quote:


14. Cutting funding for National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden ?
17. Cutting Environmental Protection Agency budget by $500 million





He's cut about every other budget aswell.

Im not defending his policies, especially the pulling out fo the Kyoto treaty, i'm merely pointing out some of the irrelevant facts that are included.....

I agree,the Bush administration has a horrible environmental track record,but some of these cited aren't really that big a deal.

-The fact is that he did do all this. Obviously the messanger would be a political enemy, but the fact is that you can research and find evidence of all of this. All of these are true (although a few are stupid but I guess that added those to reach 50- a stupid move, as it takes away from the seriousness of the rest)

But good try defending Bush, you almost had us all convinced.

I don't think for myself. I think as though I'm explaining my thoughts to someone else. I'm concerned only for those listening.

2. I think should be done I would do the same
as 4. should too.
6. Is pointless
7.Pointless
10.Still debated if Global Warmer is true
15. Coal is cheap and if enough $is invested then the environmental affect would be minimum.
17. Of coarse he would there was a as left as they get liberal. Gotta cut the fat.
18.Purely speculative...according to whom
19. To affect the environment as little as possible
20.What is exactly a shell game?
22.According to whom? The extreme left?
23.It's called changing the funding set by another President back peddling would mean he first funded and then cut back.
28.How is that against the environment
29.Speculative and matter of opinion
41.He doesn't set state standards against the environment
42.We don't have or own rainforest's.
32. Pretty clean if the waste is disposed of correctly.
48.What does entertaining me really?
49.Has been done for MANY year anyway. If you drive a car it can be argued so do you.

This list of 50 is not really fact is more opinion than anything.
