"Activists Frustrated at Obama’s Environmental Record"

"When Barack Obama took over the White House from George W. Bush, environmental activists breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Under Bush and vice president Dick Cheney, resource extraction – logging, mining, drilling for oil and gas – as often as not were favored over protection of habitat and endangered species. So was carbon-emitting energy production over conservation and “green” renewable energy. ...

But recently, Obama and his administration have been taking flak from the left on the environment."
