Many people have a hard time believing that the anti-environmental policies and the rollbacks of existing clean air, water and efficiency laws are the modus operandi of the current administration. Well, here is another one for you! -------------------- By Lisa Lambert WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The landmark U.S. law to fight water pollution will now apply only to bodies of water large enough for boats to use, and their adjacent wetlands, and will not automatically protect streams, the U.S. government said on Tuesday. Environmental groups said they fear the new policy will muddy the purpose of the federal Clean Water Act and put many smaller bodies of water at risk. Democrats in Congress have introduced legislation mandating protection of creeks, estuaries and other watersheds. --------------------- This is a BIG DEAL because most waterways (check your local rivers) are not big enough to use boats. Now those waterways are not subject to the clean water laws! This administration is now becoming as famous for "rollbacks" as Wal-Mart. In all seriousness, this kind of stuff clearly shows that there is no conservation in conservatism.....despite the claims of the candidates at last nights GOP debate. It's more of the same - allowing business to pollute unmolested. Since they are using boats as the measurement, I wonder if a canoe counts? (I can assure you it does not).
