Well Mr. Environmentalist, you've done it again.
Any (admittedly dim) hopes that President Bush might choose to salvage his tattered - some might say non-existent - environmental credentials were
dashed when his administration announced plans to open more than 3 million acres of Alaskan forests to logging, mining and road building. The
Guardian's David Adam reports that the plan will open 3.4 million acres of the Tongass National Forest, a haven for a variety of vulnerable species,
to logging and other development, 2.4 million acres of which are currently pristine. The area had previously been granted protection by the Clinton
administration under its "Roadless Rule" provision.
It's good to see you living up to your word about being an advocate for the environment, you POS.
