Call Your Congressional Clowns!

Tell them to vote 'NO' on HR 2454, the so called Cap and Trade bill. It pretends to "clean the environment," but actually does nothing except clean out your bank account. Americans need to revolt against the unending growth of poorly conceived regulations, laws, and taxes to "solve" environmental issues.

California has led the rest of the nation in environmental regulations, yet in the latest American Lung Association report, 5 of the 10 most polluted cities in America are in California. Most of the thrust of the Cap and Trade crowd is eliminating gases, like the CO2 we all exhale with every breath, to fight climate change. Instead of global warming (Al Gore's fast track to increasing his bank account), we need to spend our time and energies working on particulate matter in the air. And it wouldn't hurt to pay more attention to the details of "scientific" reports. The most hyped ones are short on science, long on bombast and merely extend the reach of government into private lives.

If you've already called them, call again.
