It's a sad state of affairs. Now with the re-wording of regulations the Bush administration has pulled, it has allowed he and his cronies to side step the legislative process, it will likely get worse. By re-designating mine waste- tailings- and calling it fill it will allow mountain top mine corporations to dump their slag, chemical and organic matter directly into steams. Also the loosening of the clean air act wording has allowed the coal power stations in the mid west to not have to upgrade their smoke stack scrubbers to the best available technology when they are down for refitting. A stipulatiuon that was required until recently. For a man who claims to be for the environment he and his corporate pupeteers have done a number on all of us down wind and to those living in the hills of West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Look forward to more despoiling of our trout waters.
