Former California Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr., gradually re-entering the political spotlight, attacked the Reagan-Bush Administration's record on the environment as one that favored new weapons systems and protection of polluters at the expense of the health of millions of Americans. Brown said also that fellow Democrat Michael S. Dukakis would be more likely than Vice President George Bush to make the United States a world leader in cleaning up pollution.
