    Bush picks chemical polluters' lawyer as environmental enforcer

    The extent to which excessive capitalism runs riot in the US is highlighted by the various Bush regime appointments which have been made to appease corporations, and allow them too much influence in policy matters. This report from the Seattle Post Intelligencer:

    Selecting a lawyer and an engineer with one of the nation's largest corporate law firms, whose clients have deep and occasionally controversial relations with the EPA, triggered concerns that Nakayama would not be able to aggressively enforce environmental laws. Foremost among those concerns is W.R. Grace, which is under federal criminal indictment on charges related to the operation of its vermiculite mine in Libby, Mont. Hundreds of workers and Libby residents contracted lethal asbestos-related disease -- a situation that gained national attention after a Seattle Post-Intelligencer series in 1999.
    So the Bush regime believe that it's fine to choose a man who actually defended a company responsible for the above atrocity to "enforce" environmental laws. Somehow, I think his mind will be elsewhere. They are a bunch of criminals. How anyone can still defend the mob is beyond me. This post is also available at Blogger News Network.
