Care2 Quote of the day - I do hope this was done with a sense of humor.

"It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."
-- Dan Quayle

"One of the first laws against air pollution came in 1300 when King Edward I decreed the death penalty for burning of coal. At least one execution for that offense is recorded. But economics triumphed over health considerations, and air pollution became an appalling problem in England. ―Glenn T. Seaborg

Signed and noted, thanks for the post, thanks Kit, for the forward. I have about given up hope until we get the Tbaggers out of Congress. They don't want any legislation done. The election this November is very important, if we don't want to continue as the last several years of nothingness coming out of these buffoons.

Signed this much needed petition, thanks.
I recall back in the 70's, was talk of the fact we should start then to take care of our planet - the majority of people dismissed this as it was nothing to worry about. Shame on them !

I had to laugh when I read Dan Quayle's quote of the day:
"It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."
- Dan Quayle, former U.S. vice-president.

The biggest impurities are the Republicanus/Teabaggers who actually have the audacity to believe Quayle. Former VP or not, Quayle is a certified idiot!

Signed. the petition, however does not tell what measures they want to have being taken and where - a first step is to invest more in renewable energies , solar and wind driven facilities, end nuclear plants, and only in the US ? Climate change is a global matter - it affects us all.

After the winter we've had on both sides of the Atlantic, I'd have thought that anyone could have seen that something is happening, and taking action on climate change would be a good idea until (unlikely, I know) some other cause is found!
