Global Warming, Has Congress Flunked Out?
Dear james m,
 
September 11, 2007
 
Don’t Flunk Global Warming 101
 
I’m not going back to school this fall, but maybe Congress should.
 
The problem of global warming is a no-brainer. Human activities on Earth are causing the planet to warm up?and that’s bad news for everyone.
 
So why do our leaders seem to be failing Global Warming 101? This is no time to be sitting in the corner with a dunce cap on!
 
It’s time for us to do a little tutoring, and teach Congress how to improve its grade. Global warming is the most important subject they face, and if they fail, we all lose.
 
So I’ve got a little homework assignment for YOU. Dust off your keyboard and remove those cobwebs from your dictionary. Let’s keep global warming front and center. Congress needs to understand that, "We, the People" want strong leadership and solutions. 
 
 
Write a letter-to-the-editor in your local paper</a> to help spread the word. Get your name in print while helping to save the planet. It’s a win-win situation. Our letter-to-the-editor tool is easy to use. You’ll be able to pick local papers and choose talking points from a drag and drop menu.
 
When it comes to stopping global warming?we can’t afford to miss the bus?it’s too important.
 
For the planet,
Samantha Rodgers

Save the Dugong, Stop the Airbase
 
What do you do when you have only 12 individuals of an endangered species left in a country? Well, according to the U.S. military, you destroy their last remaining habitat and ensure their demise. That’s what the U.S. Marines are proposing to do in Japan, home to a cousin of the manatee called the dugong. The military is planning to pave over a coral reef on Okinawa Island to build an airplane landing strip and expand its airbase.
 
Take Action! Tell Japan to say NO to the marines, because airplanes don’t belong in coral reefs.

Time is running out for the dugong and thousands of other creatures, including three species of threatened sea turtles, who call the reef and the adjacent seagrass bed home. But it’s not too late. 
 
Right now, the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the airbase site is open for public comment. It’s crucial that you tell the Japanese government to put a stop to the plan for airbase expansion in Okinawa. And please, be sure to tell your friends to write too.
 
The local people of Okinawa have protested these plans successfully for years, but now they need your support too.
 
Your friend,
John Hocevar

We’d like to send a BIG thanks to everyone who came out and participated in Hot Seat Congressional delivery events last month. Your help made this event a smashing success. There were 370 events in 80% of U.S. Congressional districts. As one activist put it, "I walked away feeling really good about the situation and happy to have been able to help voice the importance of this issue."

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them.
