The Huge Mistake - Climate Change Solutions 2009


Environmental Agency Warns 2 Staff Lawyers Over Video Criticizing Climate Policy

The Environmental Protection Agency has directed two of its lawyers to makes changes to a YouTube video they posted that is critical of the Obama administration’s climate change policy.

 The agency, citing federal policies, told the two lawyers, Laurie Williams and Allan Zabel, who are married and based in San Francisco, that they could mention their E.P.A. affiliation only once; must remove language specifying Mr. Zabel’s expertise and their years of employment with the agency; and must remove an image of the agency’s office in San Francisco.

They have been told that if they do not edit the video to comply with the policy, they could face disciplinary action.

The video, titled “The Huge Mistake,” was produced and posted in September. But the agency did not issue its warning until The Washington Post published a widely cited opinion article by the couple on Oct. 31 that raised concerns, echoing those in the video, about cap-and-trade legislation that the Obama administration supports.

I have been watching this one as these folks have been isolated since their reports were made available.

It is disappointing what we have become as a society.

Governmental actions have been more than disappointing - for a long damned time now.  Not a shot at Obama alone, including Bush, Clinton, Sr. Bush and the Congresses for those time periods.

I run a business with my partners, my wife and I own and run a home - as do so many Americans.  How do you explain all those folks that seem not to understand balancing a checkbook?  Really?!
