Default Call today: No on Cap-and-trade

...and encouraged him to vote no on Cap-and-Trade today.

I asked how many people had called....his office said that of the about 150 people that had called so far, only two of them were in favor of the bill...

If you don't support Cap-and-Trade, please call your congressman and tell them. You can find their names and numbers at http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/

This is a very important issue, will do NOTHING to reduce carbon emissions (assuming you believe the AGW nonsense), will force companies to move to China and India, and is nothing but a shameless money-grab under the guise of responsible environmentalism.

If you have any questions about the "science" behind AGW, read Michael Chrichton's essay's entitled "The Case for for Skepticisim on Global Warming", as well as "Science Policy in the 21st Century".

Don't let our government ram this nonsense down our throats, because it's our children that will end up choking to death on it.

Thank you . . .

. . . for contacting me about climate change. I understand your concerns.

While I respect your views, I also recognize the growing scientific consensus about climate change. If left unchecked, the effects of climate change include lower water levels in the Great Lakes, threats to fish and wildlife, diminished ability to grow food crops, and an overall threat to our quality of life. That's why we need a balanced, common-sense approach to this problem.

As Congress considers climate change legislation, I am working with my colleagues, especially from the Midwest, to ensure that the finished product works for Michigan. If the final legislation does not work for our state, I will not support it.

That is why I have been leading efforts in the Senate to create a Clean Energy Development Authority to provide financing for cutting-edge new technologies and create jobs. This financing is absolutely critical so that we do not trade a dependence on foreign oil for a dependence on foreign technology.

It's not enough that we simply use green technologies, we have to make them in the United States. A wind turbine is made of over 8,000 individual parts, and all of those parts can be made in Michigan. That's why I'm working to make green manufacturing a central part of our energy strategy. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act included $2 billion for advanced battery research and manufacturing. It also included a new tax credit to promote the manufacture of renewable energy products.

I believe that by making the right policy choices and the right investments, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a way that revitalizes Michigan's economy and creates new jobs.

New energy solutions create new jobs and new industries. We are in the midst of an energy revolution that is creating new opportunities for innovation, investment, and invention. At the same time, we are leaving a cleaner environment for our children, and we are breaking our dangerous addiction to foreign oil.

Because of our strong industrial and agricultural sectors, supported by some of the best research universities in the country, Michigan is in a unique position to lead the nation as we transition to a green energy economy. I will continue to fight for a climate change policy that focuses on creating good-paying jobs and strengthening our economy.

Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.

Sincerely,
Debbie Stabenow
United States Senator

stabenow is a complete douche. I had a correspondence with her about recreational land closures. she said that she had to support what her supporters wanted. I emailed her back and told her that if she supported keeping land open for recreational use and was public about her support she would gain a plentiful amount of new supporters. she in so many words said that she didn't care.

I don't care about your views, I Recognize Al Gores consensus about climate change. You can find all his proof on the World Wide Web, Als personal invention. That's why we need a radical senseless emotional driven approach to this problem.

As Congress considers climate change legislation, I am working with my colleagues, especially the crooked ones, to ensure that the finished product works for my pocket book. If the final legislation does not I will not support it.

That is why I have been leading efforts in the Senate to create a Clean Energy Development Authority to provide financing for cutting-edge money diversions. This financing is absolutely critical so that I won't be rooming with Ms Kilpatrick.

It's not enough that we simply over charge for green technologies, we have to make the United States suffer as well. A wind turbine is made of over 8,000 individual parts, and all of those parts can be made anywhere, but more crucial by companys that will send me money. That's why I'm working to make green manufacturing a central part of my economic portfolio. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act included $2 billion for advanced battery research and manufacturing. It also included a new tax credit to promote the manufacture of renewable energy products I have already profited from this.

I believe that by making the right policy choices and the right investments, we can reduce the amount of money in your wallet by a significant amount.

New energy solutions create new ways for me to get to screw the average Joe. We are in the midst of an energy revolution that is creating new opportunities for payoffs, investment, and inferior products. At the same time, we are sticking it to our children, forcing Socialism down your throat, and we are breaking our dangerous addiction freedom.

Because we have all but broke the backs of industrial and agricultural sectors, Michigan is in a unique position to lead the nation as we transition to a larger and more powerful government. I will continue to fight for, change, yes we can, and other meaningless sayings that keep us heading to Socialism, or better yet Comunism.

Please quit bothering me. I could give a shit about what you think, or your family. I'am as locked in to this seat as my hero and fellow do nothing but screw you hero Carl Levin. We both look forward to the day when you have to bow to king Obama.

Sincerely,
Debbie Stabenow
United States Senator
