We Know the Sierra Club Doesn’t Do Science, But Apparently it Can’t Do Math or History, Either

James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web today has a hilarious point to make about a new book written by Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope.

Taranto notes that Pope complains that President Bush has (supposedly) turned back the clock on environmental protection “a full century” — and Pope complains that Bush has “abandoned the environmental principles first championed by President Theodore Roosevelt.”

But, Taranto points, out, “if Bush is trying to turn the clock back a century, that would be to 1904, when the president was… Theodore Roosevelt.”

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
