  •  what is the best way that the public can weigh in (8+ / 0-)

    on these issues? We do a lot of blogathons at Daily Kos, and the goals vary for each one -- from take action items (like petition campaigns to campaigns for comments for regulations) to education to fundraisers. In fact. Rep. Barbara Lee posted today as special guest to our food justice blogathon. and we joined forces with many eco NGOS for a public comment campaign against the XL pipeline that generated over 1 million comments to oppose pipeline.

    so i am wondering what is the most effective or a selection of things that the public can do?

      I might suggest targeting a "dirty dozen" reps who actively participated in the environmental riders against the Clean Air Act.  That's an easier issue to wrap the public mind around.  

      Take the matter straight to their constituents.  This is most emphatically not just a dem issue.  My long-time Republican father believes that one someone pollutes, it is stepping on HIS libertarian toes.  It's an encroachment of his liberty.  So, lot's of potential support.

      Romney's whole business was about maximizing debt, extracting cash, cutting head counts, skimping on capital spending, outsourcing production, and dressing up the deal for the earliest, highest-profit exit possible. -- David Stockman.
