Welcomed Changes

I'm once again beginning to enjoy reading the newspaper......


Finally, we have good news coming out of Washington!

One day at a time, one step at a time.

Sen. Barbara Boxera one of the biggest environmental advocates on Capitol Hill, was named today to chair the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

Boxer will replace Republican Jim Inhofe, who calls global warming a hoax and wanted to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency created by President Nixon.

Democrats are expected to focus on cutting pollution that's blamed for global warming and speeding up the pace of toxic waste cleanup.

They're also expected to reverse tax and regulatory breaks for oil and energy producers and turning the government back toward stricter protections for endangered species.

All the man had to do was come to New England this winter to learn global warming is real. We have yet to hit freezing, let alone drop below, and it's nearly Thanksgiving!

The cartoon is fabulous, Pobble is right, and I'm beginning to feel more optimistic, too.
