Earth Day only happens once a year...

New rule could open roadless forest areas
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The last 58.5 million acres of untouched national forests, which President Clinton had set aside for protection, were opened to possible logging, mining and other commercial uses by the Bush administration Thursday.

Republicans are calling this a states' rights issue.

So when it comes to banning gay marriage, that's something that is so important that we need to talk about a federal constitutional ammendment making sure it can't happen. However, when it comes to handling environment that spreads across lots and lots of states and animals that have no clue where state lines are (though they may soon learn the difference between a green state and a Bush state), we should let the states bicker amongst themselves... That makes a lot of sense.
