    and dang it i just brought up a valid point and if you dont mind i will stress the point again as i feel its VERY important and ppl have overlooked it. if you dont agree with something Bush does, or any one else in Government for that matter, get in touch with your senator(s) and reprisentitive(s) in the long run these guys have ALOT of clout in government and can do great(and terrible) things. also you can complain to your governor. most of Bush's enviromental policies that you guys dont like can be made stricter on a state level. by all means GET INVOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Problem in Alaska is our governor is one of Bushes' biggest supporters.. and he appointed his daughter as our senator.. she also supports Bush.. neither care what Alaskans want and they've made that clear.. so ANWR will be opened, the forests will be mowed down, bear baiting is still legal, and we'll still have that blasted studded tire tax ..

    on the ANWR you are refering to oil drilling correct?? my brother worked oil rigs up in Alaska. he gave me quite the insite on how they actually run up there. they are paid HUGE bonuses if they go 6 months without a spill of anytype. going with out spills or injuries can lead to bonuses in the $10,000 dollor range in a 6 month period. it is to their great advantage to be extra careful and make sure everything stays running smoothly. he said he would be at the top of the rig pulling pipe on a new well and a heard of caribou would walk right through the oil field with out a care in the world. also thanks to directional drilling one or two oil wells can do what it used to take a dozen or more wells to do 60 years ago. your forrests will not be mowed down i can assure you the hunters in your state will make dang sure of that they enjoy the wilds to much to allow the clear cutting of their favorite place. btw controled logging does lil to hurt a forrest. forrests in the USA really arent clear cut anymore. they go in and take mature trees and the smaller ones are allowed to grow. right now commercial logging isnt really allowed here in Montana much and it has led to huge forrest fires that wipe out the forrest, houses and most anything in their way. these arent the healthy fires of a 100 years ago. there is to much fuel and they burn to hot which flat out kills the trees. since we dont allow forrest fires to clear out this extra fuel every 5 to 10 years it builds up and catistrophic fires go through. controlled logging can prevent this.

    Griffin it was an unique situation that made alot of ppl mad.....however they hated her challenger more than they hated how she originally got in. she was appointed because her dad who was the elected senator got elected as governor before his term was up in the senate so he appointed his daughter to take his place in the senate. that clear things up?

    Some states have laws that don't allow the state's environmental regulations to exceed federal regulations. I don't foresee that changing in response to any weakening of federal requirements.

    State borders don't prevent pollution from crossing, so state regulations are inadequate protection. Montana sits in a privileged position where relatively little pollution flows into it from uphill or upwind. If Montana decides to eliminate sewage treatment laws, on the other hand, any financial benefit remains in Montana while the crap flows downstream. The Connecticut River used to be an open sewer by the time it reached CT from MA, NH, & VT. It took federal action, not state action, to change that.

    Switching to endangered species protection, should the fate of S. alabamensis rely solely on the good will of Alabama? I don't think so.
