More Bad PR For U2

Already under attack by fans for being tax dodgers in Ireland, U2's guitarist now faces charges that a development project he proposed for a hillside above Malibu included invalid environmental claims in a effort to gain approval.   The California Coastal Commission shot down the plan for several mansions above the Pacific north of Los Angeles - and one official of the commission did so in terms that suggest organizers sought to salvage the project by making misleading claims.  Commissioner Peter Douglas was quoted in the LA Times as saying, 'In 38 years of this commission's existence, this is one of the worst projects that I've seen in terms of environmental devastation.  It's a contradiction in terms - you can't be serious about being an environmentalist and pick this location'.  Ouch.  The latest ruling is the third strike against the proposed development of a 156 acre spread on the hillside owned by The Edge.
