Bush Administration Fires Its Chief Great Lakes EPA Regulator

Mary Gade, the EPA's Chicago regional administrator, was too aggressive about forcing Dow Chemical Co. to clean up toxic dioxin, according to a story in today's Chicago Tribune.

And she showed too much leadership on other Lake Michigan quality matters, including last summer's wacky Indiana plan to allow British Petroleum to add pollutants at an expanded, Whiting, IN, refinery.

The Bush administration doesn't even have room for its own, moderate expert appointees.

Unbelievable. And depressing.

Thanks to Dave Dempsey for the tip.
