I actually probably would still eat the seafood. I love seafood and order it all the time because it's healthier than burgers. Not once while eating seafood have I thought of mutated fish although I bet thats now going to change! In reality, by the time it's caught, skinned, prepared, cooked and on my plate in front of me, it would be a waste not to eat it. Kids in Africa would kill for the dinner scraps that I throw away, so I try not to look a gift horse in the mouth. That being said and my poor justifications aside, if I thought that not eating seafood would actually help kick BP out of the Gulf I would curb my appetite immediately. Not to mention that mutated fish may not be all that healthy in the first place!

Cant eat beef because of hormone injections, mad cow and pink slime, no veggies because of e. coli, if I can't consciously eat seafood then what's next?

Of course I probably would have voted no anyway because I never liked sea food. Good thing the way it is now.

Gulf of California, YES!. Gulf of Mexico, not so much. Let's hear it for Guaymas shrimp!

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.

From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
