George W. Bush was correct when he said that his critics "misunderestimate" him. A Texas oilman with a spotty environmental record as Texas governor, few expected him to be an "environmental president," as his father once claimed to be. Nobody, however, expected George W. to fundamentally alter the basic equation governing environmental protection in America. What we are witnessing now, assert Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope and coauthor Paul Rauber, is something larger even than the gutting of the Clean Air Act, abandonment of endangered species, selling out public lands to loggers and oilmen, and allowing polluting industries to write the regulations. The Bush administration seeks nothing less than to overturn the consensus on natural-resource policy that developed from the time of Theodore Roosevelt through the end of the Clinton administration. In place of government as the steward and protector of our nation's natural heritage, Bush and his political allies want to restore the nineteenth-century tradition of government as coconspirator in the economic exploitation of that heritage. Their sights are firmly set on dismantling a century of environmental progress. Brilliantly argued and full of damning evidence from the Bush administration's environmental record, Strategic Ignorance sets forth what the American public can and must do to bring a halt to Bush's radical experiment.
