Martin Sheen: Bush Admin Largest Obstacle To Environmental Success

Not one to keep his feelings on the inside, Martin Sheen yesterday blasted the Bush Administration on their environmental record while speaking at an awards ceremony for green energy projects in Brussels, Belgium. From the article,

Sheen, 66, said, ‘We have enough people who are concerned and active citizens, but we do not have the support of the government. This administration has been lacking; it’s very upsetting and very discouraging. We’re not anticipating anything from this administration, but maybe the next one. Public opinion in America is starting to wake up, no thanks to this administration, but thanks to the environmentalists in America who are taking the leadership.’

‘Europeans are far more aware and Europe is doing far more than we are. So I hope we’ll catch up with you very soon; but we need a new administration in Washington to do that. My children, my children’s children and their children will inherit what we have given them and what we are giving them is not very good.’

Sheen, who has been arrested an impressive 65 times for his political activism, was recently cited for crossing the line during a Nuclear weapons protest in Nevada. He has been involved in several environmental campaigns; from working against a natural gas facility in Malibu to Refunds for Good to narrating several green documentaries. His sentiments towards the Bush Administration are not surprising in a time when the U.S. is playing catch-up on environmental policy. Years of neglect and indifference on the issue have raised alarm bells worldwide. Is anyone else excited for 2009?
