EPA Erases the Past

JanieBelle alerted me to this alarming story of the EPA shredding and auctioning off its records, removing records from its online libraries, and trying to prevent the re-opening of its shuttered libraries in an obvious attempt to prevent environmental scientists from accessing historical data.

This just one of many examples of articles I have read in the last several years about how the bushies view science as merely a campaigning tool.

Disgusting.

Exactly.

It drives me nuts when Bush says, "Freedom is God's gift to every man and woman in the world," as if "freedom" were just a longer leash than the other animals get.

Is information the birthright of every man and woman in the the world? I think so.
