Interesting article from the Reason Public Policy Institute: George W. Bush, Man of Science. It takes alook at science policy under the next four years of the Bush administration.

The part that caught my eye, of course, was the analysis of environmental issues. It's my goal to disprove the liberal contention that Bush is destroying the environment. I had a liberal friend of mine shouting that in my ear over and over during the campaign season. His implication, of course, is I don't care about the environment because I voted for Bush. Au contraire, I care greatly for the environment.

"Environmental issues," writes Ronald Bailey, "played almost no role in the campaign this past year....And why not? Air pollution is way down; water pollution levels have improved and forests are expanding."

During the next Bush administration, Bailey writes, "We're going to be stuck with the clunky and expensive regulatory system we currently endure. We will not soon see the environmental improvements that private property and markets could bring about."
