The filthy rich executive of large corporations own and rule this country. They will always get their way about everything until they manage to cause the extinction of the species homo sapiens. If it were possible to figure out why things good for the planet and for the common folk were also in the enlightened self interest of the owning-ruling class, then it would be possible to to get them to mend their ways. Lots of luck.

Signed the petition on March 11th. I agree with Charlene about the Tea Party Republicans. Either they are as xenophobic as she implied or severely misled. I believe there are both types within that 'movement'.

Don't be fooled by the Tea Party Republicans, who claim to want less government. They only want less 'do under others, as you would have them do unto you' government. Actually, they want more religiously intrusive government.

The Tea Party Republicans, have no concern for the poor, the mentally challenged or disabled. They think that, it isn't their problem. Claiming to be Christians, is the most absurd part.

TY for the article, incomprehensible to me that anyone does not grasp the concept that everyone needs clean air, it is an issue of crucial importance

They are basically using us to pay for dumping their garbage. For years the free ride has gone on. You pay to have your trash hauled away. Taxes on gas and fuel oil pay for your soot. But INCO EXXON ALCAN pay politicians not taxes. Time to take out the trash, so to speak. Corporate rule must end!
Free Gaza! Free Emery! Jail polluters!

Corporate giant or small business, no one has the right to pollute the air we all breath. It harms all life that breathes, causes unnecessary illness for more and more people and, aside from those serious problems, it is contributes to the disasters resulting from climate change, and its very expensive. Only the corporate polluters benefit financially, and even they have to breathe.
