Agency Staff Was Told to Set Limits Backing Bush’s ‘Clear Skies’ Initiative.

The Environmental Protection Agency ignored scientific evidence and agency protocols in order to set limits on mercury pollution that would line up with the Bush administration’s free-market approaches to power plant pollution, according to a report released yesterday by the agency’s inspector general.

Staff at the EPA were instructed by administrators to set modest limits on mercury pollution, and then had to work backward from the predetermined goal to justify the proposal, according to a report by Inspector General Nikki Tinsley.


Democrat’s need to make the environment an issue again.

Mercury is tainted?

Hmmm, I suspected as much.

But we don’t even live on Mercury? Why should we care if it become polluted? It’s already so close to the sun it will only take a little nudge to make it no issue at all.

You guys try me :slight_smile:

I thought it tasted funny, but I didn’t want to say anything.


Hey Mike, why must four always die in Ohio?
Everytime I read a headline it’s “4” dead, I think Neil was on to something here. Perhaps he’s our modern day Naustodomus.
