Good News for the Environment

Good News for the Environment

Postby Countryboy » Dec 15, 2008 7:22 pm

I was just watching the new 'Murrican administration investing some of the new Obama people . . . and searching 'Carol Browner' . . . the new energy czar down South. There's a couple of pages of links to blogs and news articles in a search engine. I've read a few of them and here's a synopsis for y'all.

A friend of the environment rather than big business . .

Called a 'neon green radical' by the extreme right . .

and 'a very green pick' by the middle.

As the EPA administrator thru the Clinton regime and chair of the National Audubon Society I have to think that she's a good pick . . . 'specially for us gardeners. :)

We need her here in Alberta! Of course any move the US makes on enviornmental policy is going to affect Big Oil anyway.

I was listening to some good things said about that too.

Hopefully Canada will benefit as well.

Thanks for the good news Frank! Sounds very hopeful for our poor planet.

If the extreme far right fears her and is already attempting to demonize her, then she must be good! :lol:
