- A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency biologist has resigned in
protest of his agency's acceptance of a developer-financed study
concluding that wetlands discharge more pollutants than they absorb,
according to a statement released today by Public Employees for
Environmental Responsibility (PEER). EPA's approval of the study
gives developers credit for improving water quality by replacing
natural wetlands with golf courses and other developments.
Another progressive policy, brought to you by Bushco.
"In the Bush Administration's bizarre world of `sound science,'
wetlands cause pollution and there is no evidence of global warming,"
commented PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch.
