Re: GOP and environmental issues
Well it is not like things were any better under Clinton. Yes sure Bush did not sign the Kyoto treaty but at least he is not hypocritical. Most of the nations that signed the treaty have not been able to implement it and so it is as good as not signing it. If a Democrat comes to power next election, mark my word they too won't sign the treaty.
Nixon was the President that established the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Republicans are as capable as Democrats to preserve (or ruin) nature. But what I can say is that the U.S. has done a far better job with the environment then USSR. Communism has been a fiasco for the environment. The Aral sea for instance is almost gone thanks to Soviet negligence.
