Dave,

Amen!  Now is the time to reach out, communicate, support  each other's work, 
and come together in the environmental community.  Even if Harding is not 
appointed, the alternative will not be much better.  

kind regards,

Murray Dailey

Let us unite against this monstrous potential appointment. No urban child

with asthma, no vulnerable wetland, no old-growth forest, no source of

drinking water will be safe if Harding is appointed.


They stole the election, now they want to steal our environment.
