EPA Says Climate Bill Won't Help Environment! UPDATE: Senate Phone Meltdown

Yet another reason for Americans to look before we allow the Senate to push our economy over the cliff with Waxman-Markey:

The race is on for us to enter into a clean energy future? Only wealthy countries can afford to care for their environment, and only people with disposable income are able to divert funds away from food, clothing, and shelter to address other people's interests, not to mention the welfare of wildlife and uncultivated plants and trees, which in good economic times are mostly left to take fend for themselves, but in tough times are lucky if they are permitted to survive. Those who sincerely want clean air and a healthy environment should be aware that these are unaffordable luxuries to people who are struggling economically, which is immediately obvious to anyone who compares the environment in a poor ghetto with that in a wealthy suburb.

Proponents of cap and trade who are acting out of genuine concern for the environment (as opposed to opportunists who are milking the green-movement cash cow) might do well to look at the widespread catastrophic effects on the environment of anti-capitalist poverty in the former Soviet bloc, not to mention in China, India, and other places where the vast majority of people, of necessity, place feeding their families first on the list of priorities.

Hat tip: P.J. Gladnick at the Media Research Center, Michelle Malkin


Michelle Malkin reports that "Senate Democrats have decided to delay action on cap-and-tax until after the August recess." This means that some Senate proponants of the bill are starting to weaken; Obama and Pelosi wanted this bill to shoot through the Senate. The longer it delays, the greater the number of Americans who will catch on to the scam.

Now is the time to double down with your opposition. Call, fax, email. The money you save will definitely be your own.

From Lipstick Underground via Temple of Mut via Michelle Malkin comes the following list of senators who could use some extra attention. (If your senators are not on the list, call them anyway. Somebody notices when those phones don't stop ringing, the email bandwidth seems to be shrinking, and the supply closet is out of fax paper.)
