The real story about the planned release appears to be to serve hydroelectric power producers who could use a little juice during the peak summer months. The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility condemned the flush and said that it would magnify the benefits of power production at the expense of environmental benefits. Oh horrors, not from this administration.
This whole tussle comes on the heels of the EPA career employees uniting in opposition to the Director Steven Johnson's refusal to allow California to set its own pollution standards. God forbid that people take responsibility for their own pollution in a global quagmire. We need lots of states to take similar steps if we ever want to do something constructive.
This administration is an environmental nightmare. If it's not snowmobiling in yellowstone, or being the lone holdout in Kyoto, its bringing guns into national parks. Lord help us.
