Earth Day 2013: Stop the Pollution!

 

While the web was swarmed this week with climate change articles, the message boards were swamped with comments from an active group who seem to honestly and truly believe that there is nothing wrong with burning as much fuel and creating as much waste as possible.  

 

This very noisy minority has done a great job, thus far, in obfuscating the fact that climate change is a very important issue according to the federal government and that the scientific community has come to a consensus regarding the pressing nature of changing the way our species burns fuel and creates waste.

 

Where are our leaders in Congress?  Why aren’t they leading us to change?

 

Two reasons: First, wealthy interests have spent tons of money confusing people about the real impact of climate change.  Second: Big businesses and rich individuals profiting from the use of fossil fuels are bribing our congresspeople at an alarming rate. 

 

These are important things to consider as President Obama weighs arguments on the permit decision for the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Proponents of the pipeline argue that it will not spill very often and will create jobs, even though most scientists agree that tar sands oil will be a huge problem for the global environment.

 

What about the Keytstone I pipeline?  The one they started using in 2010 and claimed would spill only once every 7 years?  Oh yeah, it spilled 12 times in 12 months.
