Bush administration wall hanging

  • Calendar cover for (Dis)Appointments

 


Many environmental organizations send their supporters calendars of desert cacti in bloom, lynx lunging through powder snow or fly fishers casting into roaring mountain streams. Not Earthjustice. This year, the environmental law firm's 2002 calendar profiles 12 Bush administration appointees in Technicolor rhetoric. Each month features a not always flattering color photograph of a different appointee, a box that explains how their job affects the environment and a few unfortunate facts about their background. Over the course of the year, calendar readers will learn that when Interior Deputy Secretary J. Steven Griles worked for the Reagan administration, he failed to enforce mining regulations; Attorney General John Ashcroft says he is "a private environmentalist"; and Ann Veneman, Secretary of the Department of Agriculture, assured California farmers that if Bush was elected, they would no longer be subject to "burdensome" environmental regulations.


"Over the past year, the Bush administration has made almost weekly attacks on the environment and public health," says Maria Weidner, a Washington, D.C.-based policy analyst for Earthjustice. "This calendar is a good reminder of who is behind the scenes and how it doesn't take much time to ruin our environment."
