E-M:/ fieger mouth

Enviro-Mich message from Dave Dempsey <davemec@voyager.net>

Persons who remember statements by the Engler Administration about the
potty mouth of gubernatorial candidate Geoffrey Fieger last fall may find
intriguing this excerpt about the Kyoto climate change treaty from Engler's
op-ed in the Detroit News today:

"Remember, the administration that negotiated this job-killing treaty
includes some of the same people who nearly stopped a new steel plant in
the Flint area. To these zealots, facts, science and truth are simply
obstacles to be overcome in their efforts to achieve a radical anti-jobs

Of course, our Governor would never attempt to polarize the populace with
inflammatory rhetoric pandering to stereotypes about environmental advocates.
