The Navajo Times March 5, 2009 The paid advertisement in the Navajo Times (Feb. 26, 2009) by Steven C. Begay and Dirk Straussfeld, not only shows that Begay is the leading Shirley administration victim of anti-science syndrome, he is the Typhoid Mary of ASS. The Diné Power Authority's GM displays a complete disconnect from current climate science.
The Navajo Times March 5, 2009 The paid advertisement in the Navajo Times (Feb. 26, 2009) by Steven C. Begay and Dirk Straussfeld, not only shows that Begay is the leading Shirley administration victim of anti-science syndrome, he is the Typhoid Mary of ASS. The Diné Power Authority's GM displays a complete disconnect from current climate science. Begay claims, "The U.S. EPA has said the proposed emissions levels appear to be the lowest ever applied for anywhere in the country for a pulverized-coal plant of its size using existing technology." Begay dismisses the science-based warnings of the U.S. EPA, in their latest report (July 2008), "Analyses and Effects of Global Change on Human Health and Welfare and Human Systems. Written by scientists, the document acknowledges that the effects of global warming are already evident and will become more evident in the next 50 years. The report also affirms parts of a Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2007 report that spelled in detail the serious nature of climate change. The U.S. EPA was blunt, saying climate change will pose "substantial" threats to the health and well-being of every American and could widen the divide between people who can adapt to a more hostile environment and society's elderly, the poor, children, and people with chronic medical conditions. The authors advise adapting to the changes and suggest that city, state, and federal leaders begin a serious discussion about long-term sustainability. Begay claims, "Not only will Desert Rock provide jobs, lifestyle, and financial opportunities for the Navajo people, it is also an environmental success story. Begay makes his prediction for "environmental success" definitive. The IPCC also provides a definitive assessment of where we are with climate, but that science continues to evolve. The banks who loan us the money want us to be able to do business, and if we can’t do business, if we have to go before 88 elected officials every time that we want to do business with somebody, then we’re not going to get anybody to loan us the money. “Basically what was attempted was to give the Council the authority to approve each entity that Desert Rock does business with on a case-by-case basis.†DPA General Manager Steven Begay was happy with the outcome. “I’ve been working on this close to 10 years, and this was the fourth piece of legislation that we needed.
