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.
I'm not quoting idiots who promote unsafe recovery strap techniques anymore. :miff:

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.
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.
