Does the Bush Administration Want to End Life on Earth?

The Bush administration has hampered efforts by the UN to address nuclear nonproliferation; they have stepped up research into new nuclear weapons; they are trying to loosen guidelines for the use of nuclear weapons; they are looking into new landmine technology; they have eliminated the programs that monitored nuclear waste sites in the US; and they reduced funding meant to account for all he nuclear arms that had once been controlled by the USSR. Now consider all of the Bush administrations actions related to environmental laws. Can someone tell me how they are making us safer? It sure seems to me that this administration is hell bent on destroying the world. It seems obvious to me. Can you think of another explanation for all of these actions or non-actions? Think about it!

    Shortly after Hurricane Katrina roared through South Mississippi knocking out electricity and communication systems, the White House ordered power restored to a pipeline that sends fuel to the Northeast.

    That order - to restart two power substations in Collins that serve Colonial Pipeline Co. - delayed efforts by at least 24 hours to restore power to two rural hospitals and a number of water systems in the Pine Belt.

    At the time, gasoline was in short supply across the country because of Katrina. Prices increased dramatically and lines formed at pumps across the South.

    “I considered it a presidential directive to get those pipelines operating,” said Jim Compton, general manager of the South Mississippi Electric Power Association - which distributes power that rural electric cooperatives sell to consumers and businesses.

    “I reluctantly agreed to pull half our transmission line crews off other projects and made getting the transmission lines to the Collins substations a priority,” Compton said. “Our people were told to work until it was done.

    “They did it in 16 hours, and I consider the effort unprecedented.”

    Katrina slammed into South Mississippi and Southeast Louisiana on Aug. 29, causing widespread devastation and plunging most of the area - including regional medical centers and rural hospitals - into darkness.

    The storm also knocked out two power substations in Collins, just north of Hattiesburg. The substations were crucial to Atlanta-based Colonial Pipeline, which moves gasoline and diesel fuel from Texas, through Louisiana and Mississippi and up to the Northeast.

    “We were led to believe a national emergency was created when the pipelines were shut down,” Compton said.
