In addition to his expected praise for alternative fuel sources (ahem), the Texas oilman (ahem, ahem) strongly feels “… the human being and fish can coexist peacefully.” So do I, Mr. President. So do I. Well, probably not salmon, trout or tuna, but definitely other species. Someday. Maybe. One can only hope. You’re such an optimist, Mr. President, I’ll bet you can envision a world in which, one day, cars are powered by the renewable fin power of peaceful fish. Peaceful fish that are paid a living wage and whose children attend better schools. Better schools for schools of fish! Dare we dream this American dream?
President Bush also makes the bold ecological statement that “It isn’t pollution that’s harming the environment. It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.” Really gives you pause, doesn’t it?
Happy Earth Day.
