Bush to designate 3 new marine monuments

President George W. Bush will designate vast areas of the Pacific Ocean tomorrow as marine monuments -- part of an ambitious bid for a positive environmental legacy in his final weeks in office. The designation will include three new monuments in remote areas of the Pacific around U.S. territories. Altogether, the protected areas will encompass 195,000 square miles -- the largest area of ocean or seabed set aside in the world, according to White House Council on Environmental Quality Chairman James Connaughton.
