Comments by Brown don’t look promising for a climate bill.
Brown thinks the EPA is a non-governmental agency! And he thinks that schools and churches are going to be regulated; he obviously didn’t delve into this issue at all before voting YES on the Murkowski Resolution.
1Sky is planning to deliver oily bird awards to the 47 oily Senators who voted for the Murkowski resolution. We found the idea delightful, so we signed on to participate!
We will be presenting Brown’s award in Boston at 11:00 AM on Thursday, June 17th, at his office, 2400 JFK Federal Building, 55 New Sudbury Street, Boston.
Please join in the fun!
Disappointing news for all of us who care ab out preserving a habitable planet!
Call Senator Brown’s office, at 202 – 224 – 4543, and ask him to vote NO on the Murkowski Amendment, S.J. Resolution 26.
To quote Avaaz.org, “The Senate is preparing to take a giant leap backward on climate change this week — just when it should be leaping forward.”
“Senator Murkowski’s resolution attacking the Clean Air Act may come to a vote in the next few days. Her resolution — you could call it the “Dirty Air Act” — was literally written by industry lobbyists. Its effect: override the EPA’s ability to regulate global warming gasses, by overturning the EPA’s finding that climate change, driven by greenhouse gasses, is a threat to Americans.”
