I recently received this from the Wilderness Society:

The Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, FY 2012 is one of the most anti-environmental pieces of legislation ever created. I urge you to vote against this bill, or demand that anti-environmental measures are removed from it.

Places, programs and policies that Americans have held dear for decades are at risk. Please don't allow your name to be associated with such a bill.

My specific concerns include:
*Prohibiting EPA from reducing greenhouse gases that lead to global warming;
*Prohibiting the use of federal funds to list and recover endangered species;
*Eviscerating spending for our national lands, which could lead to the closure of national wildlife refuges, and the shutdown of efforts to help our lands address the worst effects of climate change;
*Uranium mining within the Grand Canyon; (thanks GE)
*Deep, debilitating cuts in the Forest Legacy and Land and Water Conservation Funds programs, which allow state, local and federal governments to work together on conservation needs, all the more important in the face of global climate change;
*Eliminating water pollution laws for logging roads on national forests and allowing for expanded off-road vehicle use on national forests in California;
*Exempting Big Oil's massive offshore drilling operations from Clean Air Act requirements designed to protect our health and our environment.

This legislation is some of the most anti-environmental legislation in years. I urge you to thoroughly oppose it.

The Kavanaugh Scandal Goes Beyond Sex & Must Be Investigated

Thom plus logo While all the attention on the possibility of impeaching justice beer bong Kavanaugh is focused on his alleged sexual behavior, the real scandal is that the Republicans refused to release years of paperwork on his participation, when he was inside the Bush administration, with regard to torture and other war crimes.
