Today, the Senate passed the Energy Policy Modernization Act (S.2012). Prior to the vote, Friends of the Earth joined over 75 environmental and community organizations to oppose the bill because of provisions that would instruct federal agencies to disregard the scientific consensus that burning biomass for electricity has significant greenhouse gas emissions.
The madness continues unabated. Insanity that is beyond belief. Politicians accept bribes to poison our wells, our foods, our air... ourselves! Corruption should be about sleazy self interest and greed. It should not be so deadly, so suicidal... So disturbingly stupid!
How dumb are we? It is hard to fathom poisoning even our own drinking water.
