It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.


Mother Nature

Just a few notable problems for the environment:

--Congress has authorized drilling in the protected Yukon Wildlife Refuge in Alaska
--Congress has opened up the East Coast's largest undeveloped island for commercial exploration
--Congress has slashed clean water spending by $242 million
--The Kyoto Protocol (enough said - but I'd point out that the US is the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases)
--On that subject, refusing to even utter the words "climate change," and insisting that it is "climate variability," whatever the hell that means.

--Rejecting mandatory reductions in greenhouse gases (Bush claims that they would have a "negative economic impact.")
--2004 was the 4th hottest year on record. And actually, the top ten hottest years have all occurred since 1990 (ok, maybe not here in Ohio. Though all 3 feet of my snow from Christmas week has melted)

Just a few noteworthy enivornmental miscues. Sucks to be Mother Nature. No wonder she is pissed off.
