Since becoming president, George W Bush has walked away from Kyoto Protocol, pushed for oil drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, weakened protections for endangered pieces & wilderness & retreated from his campaign pledge to regulate carbon dioxide. But president's agenda reaches deeper than these well known policies. In Bush vs Environment, Robert S Devine shows how White House is quietly undermining entire system of environmental safeguards that has developed over past 30 years. Administration's tactics include:

Encouraging lawsuits against federal government that challenge existing environmental laws & then feebly defending cases in court.
Ignoring scientific evidence that doesn't support President Bush's goals & pressuring government scientists to product results Administration wants.
Using fuzzy math to overestimate costs & underestimate benefits of regulations that protect human health & environment, which can lead to eliminate of much needed rules.
