    Here’s one by yours truly, Mr. G.W Bush.

    Q: What specifically has your administration done to improve the condition of our nation�s air and water supply?

    A: Off-road diesel engines, we a reached an agreement to reduce pollution from off-road diesel engines by 90%. I�ve got a plan to increase the wetlands by 3 million. We�ve got an aggressive brownfield program to refurbish inner-city sore spots to useful pieces of property. I proposed to the Congress a Clear Skies Initiative to reduce sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and mercury by 70%. I fought for a strong title in the farm bill for the conservation reserve program to set aside millions of acres of land for – to help improve wildlife and the habitat. We proposed and passed a healthy forest bill to protect old stands of trees and at the same time, make sure our forests aren�t vulnerable to the forest fires that have destroyed acres after acres in the West. I proposed a hydrogen-generated automobile. We�re spending a billion dollars to come up with the technologies to do that.
