Posted on 02/29/2012 1:48:03 PM PST by Twotone
Federal agencies inadequately reviewed Oregon's water quality standards for stream temperatures, a U.S. District Court judge ruled Tuesday, a decision that puts a critical component of the state's clean water laws in doubt.
Judge John Acosta said the Environmental Protection Agency needs to take a much harder look at how the state evaluates the temperature effects of logging, farming and cattle grazing.

This world has certainly gone crazy.
No human will be allowed to within 5 miles of any body of water. Protecttion of the enviroment from the destructive forces of people must be enforced.
I used to swim in country streams quite a lot when I was younger. I noticed that they are cold in the spring, and get warmer as the summer progresses. Sometimes toward summer’s end, they were lukewarm.
I never noticed that it had much to do with cows or loggers. As you say, this is a pretext. More delays, more bureaucrats hired, more thermometers bought to take stream temperatures. More arguments about what the temperatures should be. Then the global warmists are brought in to discuss the matter, and they hold seminars in Hawaii, Lucerne, Oslo, and Johannesberg.
Then they send everything back to committee, because the evidence is inconclusive.
As Clinton would say, “just put a little ice on it.”
Was it taken rectally or orally?
No more logging, cattle or grazing! Incredible. And I knew it was bogus even before I read your opening remark.
So what will be left when the current regime gets finished with us? No houses, no food. Kill off as many babies with abortion. Kill off the elderly. DESTROY AMERICA.
Which of those cities has the highest amount of government funded/controlled prostitutes?
It's been just as crazy in times past but the "environmental" approach to world socialism is surreal. Politicians, regulators and judges are herding the sheeple into increasingly smaller corrals using environmental scare tactics as cattle prods. What's really crazy is the people themselves are voting for tyranny due to their own ignorance and complacency.
This has its origin in Agenda 21.
