This election isn't going to be won on who says they will or won't
clean up the environment. I am not going to get into a long debate on
whether or not there is proof of global warming. Everyone admits the
earth goes through climate changes, we have proof of that. What we

Have you read the papers today. The south of England is under water
with flooding and violent storms. Europe has been battered with
terrible weather. An Italian tanker broke up Monday in the English it

the environment. I do what most are now compelled to do, sort my
garbage. I am person just like you who lives on the planet and where
you don't seem to be, I am concerned what is happening to earth.
Whatever you want to believe, believe. Maybe you won't mind wearing
lead BVD's and all covered up to go for a walk in the sunshine. I

Check out some sites, you might learn something.
