Crunch time on the Gore/Obama global warming agenda

Header


Want to take concrete action now to stop Al Gore's and President Obama's top radical global warming agenda item?

The Senate is scheduled to vote June 10 on the Murkowski Resolution, S.J. Res. 26, that, if passed, will stop the out-of-control Environmental Protection Agency's global warming rampage cold.
 
The resolution has 41 cosponsors - but we need 51 votes to pass.  Conventional wisdom right now is that we will not have the votes ... and there's no filibuster, no second chances.

We have only two weeks to change this.

Thanks to the dedicated work of grassroots activists like you, cap-and-trade is currently stalled in the Senate.  So, the Obama administration is using the Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, to try and backdoor cap-and-trade without congressional approval.  (I know we're all shocked to hear this...)

For a full briefing on the EPA's outrageous actions and for more details on the Murkowski Resolution, head to regulationreality.com.

Over the last couple of months, our Americans for Prosperity team has traveled the nation telling folks about this crucial issue through our Regulation Reality Tour™.  We've held events in Colorado, Arkansas, Ohio and Indiana to tell our fellow citizens about the EPA invading our lives.  CLICK HERE FOR pictures and coverage of the events.
 
AFP is committed to making sure that the Left doesn't sneak its agenda by the American people.  Through our tours and events, we're informing the public about what's really going on and we're making sure your voice is heard in Washington. We couldn't do it without your help.

The EPA - an unelected Washington bureaucracy - is aggressively moving to regulate every aspect of our energy use.  They've targeted small businesses, family farms and ranches, charities and churches, and even individual single family homes for their new red tape and bureaucracy.   If President Obama's EPA has its way, then eventually every small business in America will have to report to the EPA on the amount of energy they use - and pay fines if they use more than the bureaucrats at the EPA deem reasonable.

Think about that.  Unemployment is at 9.9%.  We need more jobs. But Obama's EPA will be penalizing businesses for using more energy and creating more jobs!  

We need lower food prices.  But Obama's EPA will pile new red tape on family farms and ranches, driving up the cost of our food.

In Dover, Ohio, I stood with a man who owns and operates a small company that produces rubber - providing good jobs to just under 100 folks.  With anguish on his face he said, "Tim, we're beating the Chinese.  We've figured out how to be more productive and more efficient than they are.  It's my own government that's killing us with their red tape and fees."  

In Grand Junction, Colorado, I spoke with a third-generation rancher who explained how EPA bureaucrats were on his property every single day - and now they're talking about forcing him to get rid of his entire fleet of ATVs and tractors, because in the EPA's eyes they're not "energy efficient enough."  

The Murkowski Resolution would overturn the EPA's recent endangerment finding, stopping their entire global warming regulatory assault dead in its tracks.

Let's make sure every member of the Senate hears from us before this vote.
