William W. Lawrence wonders why leftists won’t condemn terrible environmental destruction:
You never raised your voices or even an eyebrow when our communist neighbors, under President Hugo Chávez, went drilling and tromping all over the Venezuelan Rain Forest.
Venezuela holds about 151,000 square miles, some 3 percent of the world’s total of frontier forest. The tropical rainforests found in this area are some of the richest on earth, containing an estimated 15,000 types of plant species.
Venezuela has, so far, lost 41 percent of its original rainforest, and 37 percent is now threatened.
Right, it’s Bush’s fault.
You are not whining or shrieking about Fidel Castro proclaiming that his communist polluters will soon be drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf within 35 miles of the Florida coast. Americans are not allowed to do that.
Three bucks a gallon! Oh yeah, it’s Bush’s fault.
No idea if those numbers are accurate. Not that accuracy is ever a concern to environmentalistas.
