Ramesh, et al:

Yes, yes, the NY Times magazine article on Bush and power plants is on the top of today’s “to-do” pile, though it is with a sense of weariness and duty that I shall read it. In the meantime, interested readers should see this piece, where I de-mystify much of the nonsense about “new source review.”

For the moment, note one thing: Most of the enviro complaints abou Bush are always about process, and not results. The EPA’s emission data on power plants for 2001 and 2002 (the most recent data available) show power plant smog emissions are going–down.
