During the 2000 presidential campaign, George W. Bush offered clues as to how he would deal with the environment. In his speeches he said nice things about cleaning up pollution and protecting wildlife and supporting parks, even going so far as to make some specific promises. But people who looked beneath his words and heeded the old Watergate adage-follow the money-quickly saw where Bush's loyalties lay, according to this new book by author Robert Devine, supported in part by the Center for Investigative Reporting. The trail of campaign dollars led to big corporations and powerful industries, many of which will lose a lot of money if the federal government does a better job of protecting the environment, and will make a lot of money if the government weakens certain environmental regulations.
