I'll say this about 2008: It was mighty memorable. Some very discouraging stuff went down -- decisions affecting endangered species, coal mining, beloved wild landscapes. That said, some great things happened, too. Like the promise of science being welcome in the White House again. Like the decision by the EPA's Environmental Appeal Board that the EPA has no valid reason to refuse to regulate the CO2 emissions that come from new coal-powered plants (too bad Stephen L. Johnson is now going against that ruling).
But I'm not telling you Treehugger readers anything you didn't already know.
