SAD-BUT-TRUE

HOUSTON (Reuters) - As
President Bush readies a new plan on global warming, environmentalists say an 18-lane highway going up in Houston speaks volumes about how people in his home state of Texas view the planet.


Between 2003 and 2009, $2.7 billion of state and federal money will have been plowed into expanding 23 miles of Interstate-10 in west Houston to as wide as 18 lanes in some stretches of the city's main east-west road.
"It is a concrete monstrosity," said Jim Blackburn, an environmental lawyer in the Texas city who fought the expansion of "I-10" and lost. "It probably shows as much as anything the philosophy of development here." ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ SADLY I BELIEVE THIS SAME PHILOSOPY APPLIES TO THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIRAR-I-O- CANADA.^ ^ ^GOD HELP THE ENVIRONMENT.
