E-M:/ big guns ready to fire against global climate treaty

Enviro-Mich message from davemec@sojourn.com (Dave Dempsey)

Politicians from Governor Engler to John Dingell and Michigan business and
labor leaders are planning to launch an attack on a global climate treaty
this fall.  In fact, they're planning a mid-October press conference and a
"grassroots" campaign to scare Michigan citizens into thinking their
lifestyles will be ruined if the U.S. commits to binding emission reduction
targets for greenhouse gases later this year.  The campaign will also
include a resolution of opposition from the Michigan Legislature.  It's not
too early for citizens genuinely concerned about the fate of the planet --
and aware that the U.S. could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions
with little or no pain through energy efficiency and renewable energy -- to
gear up to counter this polluter disinformation campaign.
