Tragedy of the Commons
Just a reminder from WaPo that our eight-year-long national nightmare will not end on November 4. It may take another generation of politics to undo all the deregulatory damage the Bush administration is about to unleash on the world in his waning days:
Those and other regulations would help clear obstacles to some commercial ocean-fishing activities, ease controls on emissions of pollutants that contribute to global warming, relax drinking-water standards and lift a key restriction on mountaintop coal mining.
Hey, it worked for Wall Street, right?
I guess Bush now hates America so much that he wants to blow up our mountains and poison our drinking water.
