Al Gore "Green-iacs" Set Up Shop in Valley; Take Aim at John McCain
|The famed "Manbearpig" pokes fun at fear mongering some folks associate with global warming|
Operating out of a rented house, Repower Arizona, as this faction is called, claims to be a non-partisan organization "commited to educating the global community about the urgency of implementing comprehensive solutions to the climate crisis."
Or, as South Park fans everywhere refer to it; defeating "Manbearpig."
The group's main goal: Convincing McCain to support the American Clean Energy and Security Act, or Cap and Trade.
The bill would define a cap to the amount of pollutants a company is permitted to emit each year, and if a company thinks it will exceed the cap, it can buy what are essentially pollution points from companies that don't expect to reach it.
The group sees McCain as a Republican senator they can persuade to jump on board the seemingly liberal piece of legislation, which has already passed the House, and is heading to the Senate.
A "green" group with an actual agenda; call us crazy, but there is something suspiciously un-obnoxious about these guys, despite the Al Gore connection.
