"[The Bush administration's] 'healthy forests' initiative should be viewed in the more sceptical light of other moves to allow new logging in roadless and wilderness areas, and to transfer management of some national forests to local interests...The proposed new rule in the Clean Air Act is of even more dubious value...The Natural Resources Defence Council which obtained the leaked draft says it will allow more air pollution from 17,000 industries across the country. That is a very dirty trick to play on the environment."
