We have an exellent thread on how pollution is affecting DNA on our babies.
I wonder also where is the leadership but let's see.
More on the Bush administration favoritism of big polluters over the safety of the environment.

So as we get sicker due to problems with our air, water and natural resources the administration is making sure that we can not get affordable health
care and we will get medicaid cuts.
Today more than 130 million Americans-almost half the population-are exposed to unhealthy air pollution levels. Emissions from power plants are linked
to a host of pediatric health problems, from asthma attacks and slowed neurological growth to stunted lung development and neonatal death. Instead of
living up to his responsibility to safeguard public health and improve the nation's air quality, President Bush has partnered with industry lobbyists
to begin a vast rollback of Clean Air Act protections.
The legacy of the present administration to generations to generations to come making sure our children future is of health problems giving the
pharmaceutical industry a favor at the expenses of the American people future generations.
This some of bush records on our environment protections
Unclear Skies. The Bush administration's "Clear Skies" initiative would rewrite the Clean Air Act to benefit some of the nation's biggest
polluters while weakening health protections for millions of Americans.
The bush record on our National Parks, has suffered in order to protect private interests.
The bush record on Global warming, Bush administration has make sure that such thing as global warming warnings is a fallacy and a Myth that will
never affect the US occurs we are one of the biggest producers of CO2.
Bush record on environmental enforcement, The EPA has for the past 30 years been one of the best agencies to keep the environmental laws in place,
since bush administration resources has been taken away from the agency, lest inspectors mean lest sources to find environmental law breakers giving
more access to companies to pollute.
With such a record is not wonder the bush administration is not part of the Kyoto Protocol.
