Another Day, Another Story About Sanctioned Pollution

First it was British Petroleum, winning permission from the State of Indiana - - with the US Environmental Protection (sic) Agency looking the other way - - to begin dumping three additional tons of ammonia and sludge daily into Lake Michigan at the site of BP's Whiting, Indiana oil refinery.

Today, it's the Bush Administration permitting coal mining companies to blow off the tops of entire mountains in Appalachia to remove coal, allowing the rubble to fall in and fill streams and rivers in the valleys below.

Filling in hundreds more miles of waterways, projections show.

How many days left until January 20, 2009?
