I’ve been watching in dismay as the 113th Congress poses and postpones in avoidance of any significant legislation to finally take action to confront the growing crisis of climate change.
This week, we have legislation from Louisiana U.S. Senator, David Vitter, that tackles the need for regulation of emissions of carbon dioxide, a dangerous greenhouse gas. Vitter’s legislation tackles the need for regulation, and shoves its face into the mud.
S. 107, introduced by Senator Vitter this week, would outlaw any regulation of carbon emissions.
David Vitter wants to take the climate crisis that’s already fouling and eroding the coast of Louisiana, and make it worse. Why?
Senator David Vitter has taken over a million dollars from the oil and gas industry – and that’s not even counting the nod-and-wink cash from oil companies that’s been spent on his behalf through independent expenditures. What’s good for the profits of oil and gas companies is good for the bank accounts of David Vitter as well.
