Who voted for unlimited pollution?

Mar 6, 2014

House Roll call 106

113th Congress 2nd Session

Passed: 229-183

Vote:

Roll call 106
Votes For: 229
Votes Against: 183
Not Voting: 18

For the first time in American history, we're on the brink of placing national carbon pollution limits on America's dirtiest coal-fired power plants--the largest source of carbon pollution in the country. But this bill, the so-called "Electricity Security and Affordability Act," H.R. 3826, would smash our progress.

152,126 EDF activists stood in opposition to this bill--but the House of Representatives passed it on March 6th.

Find out how your Representative voted, and send them a message to thank them for standing up for the environment--or let them know how disappointed your are in their vote.

See the list on this link: http://support.edf.org/site/VoteCenter?page=voteInfo&voteId=21333&autologin=true&utm_source=EDF%20action%20network&utm_medium=email-35004&utm_campaign=advocacy&link=body_text1

Very disappointing that so many voted for this bill.

"I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security.
Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?"
--Robert Redford, actor.

“I was in a plane once going from Santa Fe. to Santa Rosa, California, about 10 o’clock at night in a Lear jet and both engines quit,” recalled Redford during a New York interview promoting a survival film which opens in Canada Oct. 25, 2013.

Me, Me, Me, I voted for it. I love the smell of carbon pollution first thing in the morning, especially when I'm on my 5th cup of coffee and third pack of smokes:) There is nothing like a little black lung to get you up and moving.

What difference does it make. The coal once used in America is now being exported to China and India. It doesn't matter where you burn the coal, you're still burning coal.

I agree with limiting pollution, but why do they have to include the word "carbon" ?

that's some global warming mythos that we need to quit perpetuating.

So far I haven't been able to figure out this thread...However, I think you are in need of a geography lesson.

As far as I know there is NO Santa Fe, Ca . There is a Santa Fe Springs near Los Angeles that does not have an airport. It is 440 miles (about 7 hours) away from Santa Rosa, Ca.

More than likely the Santa Fe quoted was New Mexico, which is 1190 miles (about 17 hours) away from Santa Rosa, Ca.

Hope this helps...

The mistake was probably from all that smog and pollution they were sucking up:)

hahahahahahaha, I know, I get a kick out of all of the sky is falling/global warming folks who are a bunch of rebels just looking for a cause to fight. They remind me so much of the hippies from the 60's. I guess they missed that opportunity so they found Global warming, but wait now that this myth has been dispelled, they decided to change the name to Climate change.
