In the most scathing attack on George W. Bush since the terrorist attacks of Sep. 11, Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) blasted the president’s environmental record in a speech made yesterday in California. Lieberman, a possible presidential candidate in 2004 and one of 15 senators to be recognized by the League of Conservation Voters for a perfect environmental voting record, was particularly critical of Bush’s energy and global warming plans. The senator also took Bush to task for pushing oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a proposal Lieberman said he would filibuster “until the caribou come home … or Vice President [Dick] Cheney releases the energy task force records, whichever comes later.” Lieberman announced that the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee, which he chairs, will begin hearings next month on the administration’s environmental record.
