default Comments on the Rewritten Word Articles

Post by Lizbuff13 on 5th September 2010, 5:09 pm

I am not prepared to take a stab at rewriting any articles at this time, especially given the vast distance between what might be going on in America vs. other countries, however, I did want to make a comment about something I read in the article about clean air. I don't want to clutter up the area for the rewritten articles, so I thought I would post a new thread.

It referenced California's ban on "ozone creating air fresheners" I wish California would ban a few other dangerous irritants in our environment.

Check out this article to see the POWER of the corporate lobbists in America.....it is disturbing at best.
This article was posted on Sep 04 2010 by Plastic Pollution Coalition

This week, California’s elected officials voted down both a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and a ban on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in plastic baby bottles, sippy cups and baby formula containers.
Thanks to the millions spent by lobbyists for the American Chemistry Council, Dow, and Exxon to defeat these bills, now every Californian knows just what the acronym [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] means; why [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] should never be allowed in baby products; and exactly how much cash-strapped California spends on collection and removal of plastic bags (at least $25 million, and possibly much more), lavishly handed away at the checkout lines.
With our state in such dire financial straits that teachers are being furloughed and libraries are being closed, we are grateful to the chemical company lobbyists for helping us bring this needless waste of money to the forefront of public discourse.
Thanks to the expensive and contentious debate around these two bills, every Californian is wondering why plenty of other developed nations, like France and Canada have managed to ban [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] from baby products in their countries. Why can’t it be done here? Do we care less about our babies? Every Californian is chagrined to see that “developing nations” like India, Mexico, China and so many others have already banned plastic bags. Why can’t Americans do the same?
True, the bans on plastic bags and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in baby products in California were not enacted, in spite of overwhelming public, green business, labor and grocery store support. But something more powerful has been put into motion—the unstoppable energy of a mass movement.
Nothing can stop communities from raising their voices against plastic pollution. Banning plastic bags is something every community can do, just like many local jurisdictions have already started banning polystyrene containers.
And [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]? We simply have to continue to push on this. Our children deserve our protection. Mothers and fathers, let’s all speak up and demand safe BPA-free children’s products.
We, the founders of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] will continue to support all efforts to reduce plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on our environment. We are more motivated than ever, the time is now.

Please when voting with your dollars be mindful and reduce buying plastic as much as possible, for it is trashing our planet and always consider this: If not Locally Produced, then Organic, If not Organic, then Family Farm. If not Family Farm, then Local Business. If not Local Business, then Fair Trade.
