When is Humanity Going to Get That We’re All in This Together?

Some good news, finally!

Posted by honestpoet on January 22, 2007

It seems that corporate America (or at least a significant segment of it) has actually gotten it’s head out of its butt! Ten of the big ones are working with environmental groups to tell congress to wake up and do its job: pass laws and let America join the rest of the world in fighting global warming. Here’s the story, which I heard on NPR, as reported at MSNBC.

  1. The problem with what the corporations are promoting is that the undercut more progressive legislation to reduce global warming and climate. The gold standard thus far is Senate Bill 309 sponsored by Bernie Sanders D-VT. This bill mandates an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050 based on 1990 emissions. That is what most scientists are saying is necessary from the U.S.

    A called Step It Up is organizing rallies across the country on April 14 to call for that level of reductions. Google Step It Up for more info.

    I’m not surprised at all to hear that what the corporations want is short of what’s needed; I’m just happy that they’re forcing those nutty neocons to acknowledge that global warming is a fact and not a myth and that we need to do SOMETHING about it.

    Thanks for the tip on Step It Up.
