McCain's Letter (McCain aligns with Global Enviro activists)
The Washington Times ^ | December 26, 2006 | Greg Pierce

Posted on 12/26/2006 9:16:14 AM PST by Gritty

Sen. John McCain has signed a letter for the Environmental Defense Action Fund, in which the Arizona Republican emphasizes the group's support for his bill that aims to place "the first-ever national cap on global warming pollution."

Mr. McCain, in his letter, mentions no specific type of "pollution," although carbon dioxide has been the main target of anti-global-warming lobbyists. Carbon dioxide is produced in large part by human breathing and cattle flatulence.

The Environmental Defense Action Fund sent out the mailing, including Mr. McCain's letter, in which it asked for contributions and for recipients to sign and mail a prewritten "petition" asking their home-state senators to support Mr. McCain's bill.

"To mobilize forward-thinking citizens like you, I've again teamed up with Environmental Defense Global Warming Action Network because of their long track record of producing results," Mr. McCain said.

Human brathing is a small factor in CO2 emmisions and cow flatulence is methane.

"the first-ever national cap on global warming pollution."

I'll stay home before I vote for anybody with that on their agenda.

If McCain does become the candidate, the same people here who are criticizing "cut-and-run-conservatives" for not voting straight Republican (and actually, they did - it was Reagan Democrats and independents who left town) will be on these threads saying that we have to vote for McCain because he is the Republican. Forget his 6 years of obstruction, his opposition to the Patriot Act and handling at Guantanamo, his obstruction of conservative judges, his authorship of the amnesty laws that will be passed.

Thanks for posting this and linking to the printer friendly version of the article.

McCrazy seems very set on deliberately walking down a path that will prevent me from voting for him.

I suppose this letter is designed to appeal to the "center." But the center is squishy, filled with Politically Correct idiots that don't have a clue.

Yes. First time I ever got a letter from the Environmental Defense Fund. I don't know why I'm on McCain's mailing list, either, unless he bought someone else's conservative list.

I stuffed everything but my name into the post paid envelope and sent it back to them.

McCain is probably even worse than hillary, because he's insane. Hillary would be a disaster of epic proportions, but McCain could be a catastrophe if he ever got his finger on the nuclear football. This latest caper doesn't surprise me in the least.

Now, now, McCain may be turning over a new leaf. Perhaps he's going to get his environmentalist whacko friends to take notice of the destruction happening to the habitat of the border areas because it's being INVADED!

Stuff it, McCain.

See its not the issue because ..Hell he supports and denies support for everything...Its about Donations and HIS legislation.

He could care less what the situation is or the outcome as long as it looks like he succeeded.

One angry, dangerous, deluded s.o.b.

A socialist psychopath that craves power vs. A Marxist psychopath that craves power = mccain vs. hillary

We're toast either way that election works out.

"Every time I think I could relent and vote for McCain, he makes me re-think that posittion."

I agree with you. I really respect McCain for what he did and went through for America. He scares me though because of what he must have expirenced in the Hanoi Hilton. I believe he is the real life version of the Manchurian Canidate. I don't believe he is always himself. I will always respect him because we are Brothers though I never expirenced what he did. I would take him long before Hitlery.

"McCain aligns with Global Enviro activists"

Not really. They are probably a front group for the carbon trading rackets.

McCain is selling himself out (not hard to do) for their money and that of the wage depression lobbies.

I believe you are right. But if that is the case, are our only two options Giuliani and Romney? I can't see those two flying either.

I think I'm throwing in for Duncan Hunter, he may be the Mother of all darkhorse candidates.

This is the carbon tax fantasy of the govenment control freaks.

Not surprising from the speech control author of McCain/Feingold.

McCain is bending over frontwards for the limosine liberal money.

Not a Fantasy at all . Check out this gem from Lugar.

“I am pleased to announce that the Lugar Stock Farm has enrolled as an offset provider in the Chicago Climate Exchange. The Lugar Stock Farm is an active corn, soybean, and hardwood tree farm in Marion County, Indiana. Our farm will be the first in Indiana to enroll in this important exchange. I am hopeful that farmers in Indiana and elsewhere will investigate the possibility of enrolling in the exchange. This not only will encourage the practice of sequestering carbon, it will provide an additional source of farm income to those who qualify,” said Lugar.

This was from May 18 2006. On his own web site. http://lugar.senate.gov/energy/press/speech/climate.html

Nothing like passing laws then becomming the prototype farm to profit from it.....conflict of interest, nah never. /s

How else can they better undermine conservatism? They do all they can to push the leftist candidates who happen to wear a GOP label, then whine that conservatives are the ones who are losing the GOP.

I won't vote for McCain under any circumstances.
