"Congress could reach a deal on the national budget crisis soon. But if Big Oil and Big Coal get their way, funding for some of our most important environmental programs could get slashed, all while dirty energy companies keep getting unfair tax breaks."

If we go over the "fiscal cliff" that our government is using to induce our compliance by terror, then cuts will hurt everyone including Big Oil as well as wealthy elites. However, if we quietly submit to the austerity package that both parties are trying to shove down our throats, then environmental programs get cut, social safety net programs get cut, programs that help real people get cut...but tax subsidies to dirty energy like Big Oil and to wealthy elites will not get cut. Just say NO to austerity that hurts the middle class, the working poor, and the environment while letting the wealthy polluters off the hook. The environment is the single greatest national security issue at this time, and it is high time that the American people demand that the government address it to ensure the survival of the nation now and in the future.

Ok thanks for sharing it's lovely and true. Now let's really look at what changes we might have to be making. Check out the huge Three Gorges Dam in China on Google Earth. Now check out what is surrounding the dam on the mountains. It's thousands of rice patty fields. They have to have them on the mountains, because the flat land is taken up by farms to feed people. China is huge & it's full of farms. We have more people on the planet every second. What about the rubbish dump we create by over packaging things & not being responsible for our rubbish which has resulted in a huge floating rubbish mass larger than Texas full of plastic bottles & plastic bags in the ocean. Are you recycling your envelopes and reusing paper for notes where you can? Check out Google Earth again and see for yourself how much forestry has been cut down in Indonesia alone, let alone Borneo and other places. Brazil has just signed a deal to cut down a lot of their forestry which will be going to China to use. Have you noticed fish starting to run out all over the world? In Australia we have to get calamari from China because Australian waters donít have the demand for the people here. These are the REAL CHANGES WE HAVE TO MAKE, WE HAVE NO CHOICE! So what is everyone really going to be doing after this month, what being nice and more caring towards each other, we should be doing that and practising that anyway? Do we need to eat bacon & eggs for breakfast and hamburger or meat sandwich for lunch then meat and vegies for tea? No we donít. Itís all there to see on Google Earth. The truth of what weíre doing to this living being planet Earth.

This petition is to tell the US Congress to leave environmental programs alone and off the budget-cutting table.

Thank you for urging your members of Congress and President Obama to preserve funding for our country's vital environmental programs and leave them out of any last minute budget deals.

Noted, signed, and made my comments directly to them--not that any of them would pay attention anyway-lol-. I don't think they know what "You can't eat money" means, too much for their brains. Bless all who love Mother Earth.
