Bush Admin Lies about Environment

Shares

The Washington Post is reporting that the Bush administration misrepresented analysis about two alternatives to Bush’s “Clear Skies Initiative”:

The congressional report, which was not commissioned by a lawmaker as is customary, said the EPA analysis boosted its own proposal by overestimating the cost of controlling mercury and playing down the economic benefits of reducing premature deaths and illnesses linked to air pollution.

Hmm…Bush and co. misrepresenting intelligence to justify a policy? I’m shocked, I tell you, shocked.
