Bad moves, man

The EPA stories just keep getting worse, this time it's even more White House interference.

From today's Washington Post:

The Environmental Protection Agency weakened one part of its new limits on smog-forming ozone after an unusual last-minute intervention by President Bush, according to documents released by the EPA.

Read the entire article for all the details, but this is shocking and looks like it's against the law. The interference is also detailed in this AP article.

Beyond that, another bad move proposed late Thursday was Alaska's senators again urging the opening of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. Gas prices are hitting record highs, but the answer is not to destroy pristine wilderness. Read more about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge here.
