Ex-heads of EPA blast Bush on global warming

Six former heads of the Environmental Protection Agency five Republicans and one Democrat accused the Bush administration Wednesday of neglecting global warming and other environmental problems.

Color me so surprised that not even Conservatives are happy with the current Administration. After all, most Conservatives understand that their descendants are going to want to keep using this planet for a few more years.

More than 3,200 still listed as missing after Katrina

More than 3,200 people are officially still unaccounted for nearly five months after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, and the state medical examiner wants the search to resume for those missing from the most devastated neighborhoods.

Aren't those the areas we stopped searching because the authorities promised there was no one left to find?

Selling the Amazon for a Handful of Beads

This one is one of the worst," Beltran says, handing me an eight-page contract.

In 2001, Agip Oil Ecuador BV, a subsidiary of the multibillion dollar Italian petrochemical company Eni, convinced an association of Huarani Indians to sign over oil access to tribal lands and give up their future right to sue for environmental damage. In return Agip gave, among other things, modest allotments of medicine and food, a $3,500 school house, plates and cups, an Ecuadorian flag, two soccer balls and a referee's whistle.

A Manhattan Island caliber deal, indeed.

That's about all the news I can take for one evening.

In the beginning, I decided to join the campaign to impeach your "smirking chimp", my "dum'ass botch". As evidence for that, you'll soon be invited to click on a hyperlink.

Before doing so, however, I would like you to read through the rest of this text. In case, you'd like to know, the U.R.L for your blog, specifically, "peevish", is found at the third hyperlink on the list below ... ah, please remember, no clicking until AFTER reading the entire text.

Perusing your blog, I believe I arrived at what is a reasonable inference. That is, both you and your readers would welcome news that indicates the campaign to impeach the president is increasing in both vigor and breadth. Ah, you'll find that evidence by clicking on the second enclosed hyperlink.

As for my plan for capturing Osama, you'll find it by clicking on the first listed hyperlink, which immediately follows this colon:




.he who is known as sefton

oh, yes, surely, you've heard about the government "requesting" certain records about internet activity. oh, br'dah! ... cynical and skeptical lil'ole me, I'm smelling a rat in all that. Quite candidly, I have cause to suspect that more than compiling statistics on access to pornographic websites is involved.

oh, yeah, right after Hitler came to power, the German people were assured that, if they were innocent of untoward activity, they would have nothing to worry about ... yeah, right.

Am I glad I clicked in here from Progress Now!

I would have missed the story about former EPA heads blasting the Bush admin. for environmental abuse and neglect. Did mainstream media "bigs" cover that?

Progress Now?

About the EPA story. It was covered by the Boston Globe, the Chicago Sun-Times, and MSNBC. Also by ABC News and CBS News (although possibly only on-line). I wasn't able to find that either the NYTimes or WaPo carried the story, but I'll admit I didn't dig very deeply on their websites.
