If Only...

From the Sierra Club website (edited by Tugboatcapn...)

Clean, Sensible Government Campaign...

The biggest single step the United States can take to reduce consumption of oxygen and the threat of global warming is to stop Senator Ted Kennedy and Senator Joe Biden from talking.

Senators Kennedy and Biden account for 40% of the U.S.'s consumption of alcohol and oxygen and emit 20% of the nation's carbon dioxide (hot air) pollution, the heat-trapping gas that causes global warming. The U.S. is the world's largest global warming polluter — we must take the lead in reducing this pollution.

The Sierra Club's Clean Politician Campaign works in a variety of ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our Congressmen and Senators. We promote policies on the national and federal level that will make Government cleaner, while defending the victories we have already achieved.

We also promote and build markets for sensible legislators, like President Bush, Bill Frist, and George Allen. Finally, we pressure The American People to elect smarter, more rational politicians.
