The League of Conservation Voters has come out with this year’s (2011) stats on our elected officials’ work. It specifically focuses on their choices affecting the health of the planetary systems that sustain our lives.
“The good news is that while the House voted against the environment an unprecedented number of times, both the U.S. Senate and the Obama administration stood firm against the vast majority of these attacks. Indeed, not only did the nation’s bedrock environmental protections emerge largely unscathed from 2011, the Obama administration also made major progress through administrative actions to protect our air and water.”
Read their Scorecard, then keep the info firmly in mind when deciding whom to hire again come next election. As a voter, I think it’s time to clean House.
