Blagojevich gets a C- average from environmentalists

Ouch.

The Illinois Environmental Council issued its report card for Governor Blagojevich today.

Water

B

Air and Energy

D+

Transportation

D+

Conservation and Natural Resources

D


Yeah, that's horrible.

And he deserves those grades.

So listen to Pat Quinn for the next two years! He's right on all these environmental issues.

I'm sick of environmentalists getting the shaft from Governor Blagojevich, especially since so many environementalists endorsed him in the primary over Vallas. It's payback time.

I don't know about you, but global warming is scaring me, and that is without the help of Bush administration propaganda, which is oh so effective at scaring people shitless. If anything my fear persists despite claims by our president that global warming is "junk science." If we don't start trying to free ourselves from dependence on fossil fuel as a nation, I don't think the world as we know it is going to last more than a couple hundred more years. Time to put that 8- billion into fusion research. But alas the oil industry does not allow fusion research to happen. I wonder why.

And Dan, environmental regualtion should be the concern of the federal government. Hot Rod should not have a say one way or the other. Allowing states to regulate the environement creates the worst possible race to the bottom, where it is oh so easy to mortgage the murky future to finance job creation and other economic activity in the present.
