Common Sense on the Environment

Christine Whitman has a nice piece in the Washington Post on the EPA’s just released Draft Report on the Environment and on the environmentalists’ unwillingness to accept good news:
“Unfortunately for the tenor of the public debate over environmental policy, too many in the environmental lobby want to hear only the bad news — they see only evil, hear only evil and speak only evil. That is why we are treated to bizarre spectacles such as what happened this spring when the Natural Resources Defense Council praised a Bush administration proposal to limit emissions from diesel engines on tractors, bulldozers and other off-road vehicles. ‘Heresy,’ cried their allies, who were appalled at the thought that any environmental group would actually support something the Bush administration was doing.”
