Shrub's parting shots at the environment

I hope that Barack Obama will take swift action to undo Shrub's last crimes against the environment. He's just approved the end of one minimal restriction on mountaintop removal coal mining referenced in the article, so that mining companies are no longer required to maintain a 100 foot buffer zone between mining areas and streams. Shrub's administration has so blatantly disregarded any concern for the environment that it could take years to undo those portions of the damage that can be undone.
