A Snowmobile for George
Friday, January 22nd, noon-2 pm
Curious about why President Bush reversed regulations to phase out the two-stroke snowmobile, the filmmaker travels to look at other acts of de-regulation: political manipulation that caused the death of Klamath River salmon, suppressed water rules resulting in a range war between Wyoming ranchers and oil companies, and suppression of environmental regulations after 9-11 with health consequences for New York workers.
