The memo calls identified reductions "disinvestments" and concedes that they will undoubtedly have "long-term consequences." Agency budget cuts now being debated in Congress for the fiscal year that begins this October 1 have raised concerns that EPA is already losing its ability to maintain coherent scientific, regulatory or enforcement programs.

"EPA planning is now driven entirely by external fiscal targets without regard to the effects upon public or environmental health," stated PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch. "The Bush administration seeks to 'disinvest' in environmental science, pollution control and global sustainability."

In his memo, Mr. Gray attempts to sugarcoat cuts by describing scaled-back operations as "centers of excellence."

The neocons aren't going to be happy until they have killed everything on this planet!

Its a step in the right direction. In fact, since the EPA is COMPLETELY un-C, it should be dismantled.

Bush has never had a "mind," except for what's in Karl Rove's fat head.

not to mention that something on the order of 80% of water and air pollution data is now SELF REPORTED BY INDUSTRY to EPA under bushie.

so when he stands up there and says air and water are cleaner, it's like, yeah, self reported stats.

the only reliable data anymore comes from watchdog groups.

And thank heavens for those groups. And for the internet(s) while we still have them. You do know far too much information comes from those darn internets, right?

That makes them DANGEROUS (almost like terrorists).
