Election 2012: Your stories
The 1% don't breathe the same air we do
Obviously, the 1% doesn't breathe the same air we do!
If they did, they wouldn't be asking for your vote to run this country on air quality unregulated by the EPA.
On air quality without the increasing auto mileage standards put in place by the current administration.
On air quality not enhanced by the alternate energy programs now in progress.
They want to pull out all the stops to run this country full-out on fossil fuels. Air quality be damned!
They'd rather turn a healthy profit now than provide all the kids they're so concerned about bringing into this world with a healthy future.
Can we have clean air and more jobs? Just look at Germany. The most robust clean alternate energy programs in the world (even with less sunny days than we have in the U.S.). And a job economy boosted by alternate energy production to match.
The world still looks to the U.S. for leadership environmental quality standards. If we represent the environmental dark ages with explosive world populations all demanding autos and energy, what kind of air will our kids breathe? There are no air borders.
Vote like you and your family need clean air to breathe for all the years to come. You can win in the voting booth this election. The race is so tight, clean air quality voters can pull it off.
