The Huffington Post and Light Bulbs!

Dear Friends,

In my reseach, I am grateful for finding The Huffington Post blog and share part of one post with all who have not yet read the views discussed there.

Bob Cesca wrote "Al Gore: The Voice Of Reality, 2006" dated 12.19.06.
Below is an excerpt of Bob Cesca's words, describing what the 110th Congress can start working on.
For the full blog, click

Imagine our country's New Year's resolutions ...

"1) A comprehensive carbon emissions tax on industry.
2) Renewed and increased tax breaks for hybrid vehicle purchases.
3) Real tax incentives for green technology investment.
4) And here's a wild idea I just thought of: free low wattage fluorescent light bulbs for every low income and elderly American. In other words, a 100 percent tax refund for every low wattage light bulb purchased. Call it the Affordable Electricity Act. Low income households and senior citizens would save on their electricity bills and get their bulbs for free while we reduce carbon emissions."

This low wattage fluorescent light bulb idea is simple and brilliant.
Even my friend's 12-year-old, Sammie, said she wants to sell such light bulbs to raise money and use the profits to plant more trees!

If 12-year-old Sammie and Bob Cesca and Laurie David ( and Al Gore and YOU know these simple steps, what is stopping us from moving out of our box and making a change!?

There is no time to wait.

Urgency ... Planetary Health.
Remedy ... Listen to our 12-year-olds and plant 18 billion trees!

A Reader Forum on Energy and the Environment
Finding ways to supply energy for some 9 billion people by mid-century without overheating the planet or triggering oil wars is arguably a defining challenge of the times. In more than 20 articles over the past year, a team of New York Times reporters have described how the world is, and is not, moving toward a more secure, and less environmentally damaging, relationship with energy. The series and related graphics and photos are archived at

Global Warming Goes to Court

Global Warming Goes to Court
by: NY Times Editorial
29 November 2006

The Bush administration has been on a six-year campaign to expand its powers, often beyond what the Constitution allows.
So it is odd to hear it claim that it lacks the power to slow global warming by limiting the emission of harmful gases.
But that is just what it will argue to the Supreme Court tomorrow, in what may be the most important environmental case in many years.
A group of 12 states, including New York and Massachusetts, is suing the Environmental Protection Agency for failing to properly do its job.
These states, backed by environmental groups and scientists, say that the Clean Air Act requires the E.P.A. to impose limits on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases emitted by new cars.
These gases are a major contributor to the "greenhouse effect" that is dangerously heating up the planet.
The Bush administration insists that the E.P.A. does not have the power to limit these gases.
It argues that they are not "air pollutants" under the Clean Air Act.
Alternatively, it contends that the court should dismiss the case because the states do not have "standing," since they cannot show that they will be specifically harmed by the agency's failure to regulate greenhouse gases.
A plain reading of the Clean Air Act shows that the states are right.
The act says that the E.P.A. "shall" set standards for "any air pollutant" that in its judgment causes or contributes to air pollution that "may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare."
The word "welfare," the law says, includes "climate" and "weather."
The E.P.A. makes an array of specious arguments about why the act does not mean what it expressly says.
But it has no right to refuse to do what Congress said it "shall" do.
Beneath the statutory and standing questions, this is a case about how seriously the government takes global warming.
The E.P.A.'s decision was based in part on its poorly reasoned conclusion that there was too much "scientific uncertainty" about global warming to worry about it.
The government's claim that the states lack standing also scoffs at global warming, by failing to acknowledge that the states have a strong interest in protecting their land and citizens against coastal flooding and the other kinds of damage that are being projected.
In a friend-of-the-court brief, climate scientists from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Stanford University and other respected institutions warn that "the scientific evidence of the risks, long time lags and irreversibility of climate change argue persuasively for prompt regulatory action."
The Supreme Court can strike an important blow in defense of the planet simply by ruling that the E.P.A. must start following the law.

Thank you, Laurie David, Founder of "Stop Global Warming" for sending this article.
