The Environmental Defense Fund helps you leave a public comment with the EPA opposing their decision to suspend the leak detection/repair part of their recently-issued methane emissions rule for two years. Two years without these requirements means two years more folks will get sick from breathing in carcinogens and two years that leaked methane assaults our climate. It's also two years that we waste methane, a perfectly usable energy source, by leaking it into the air! Those who don't care about climate change or other people's health should at least care about the wasted opportunity to make money. And of course you also know that an entire industry (the methane mitigation industry) has sprung up to help deal with methane leaks, which are as common at gas drilling wells as flies are at a pile of dung -- and the businesses doing this work charge as little as $250 for the service. So they can't really say TEH REGULASHUNZ KILLZ TEH JOBZ!!!!! or TEH REGULASHUNZ DRIVEZ US TO TEH POORHOUSEZ!!!!!
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia's war against Yemen -- a war we help fund, despite not having declared war with Yemen -- drags on, to the point where a cholera outbreak has broken out across that nation. And naturally the Trump Administration -- the one that promised to do foreign policy differently, to be "smarter" about getting involved in the Middle East -- does nothing. Well, those rich Saudis pay a lot of money to stay at Mr. Trump's hotels, so what do we expect? We expect our government to do our will, not fill the pockets of our President, so Just Foreign Policy joins with MoveOn to help you tell your Congressfolk to vote on our continued involvement in the Saudi Arabian war in Yemen via the War Powers Resolution. We shouldn't need a damn War Powers Resolution, for real -- the Constitution already says Congress declares the war and the President fights it, and the Founders divided those powers so that a President wouldn't ignore the will of the people and fight wars they didn't want. So let us assert our will.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to protect the Johnson Amendment, which prevents churches from advocating for particular candidates or donating money to them, then People for the American Way still helps you do that. Does the Johnson Amendment restrict the free speech rights of churches? Ah, no, it doesn't -- churches can still talk all the politics they like, they just can't give direct aid and comfort to a particular politician's efforts to get elected or re-elected, or else they'll lose their tax-exempt status. Note well that last part, because it also refutes the BUT I GIVEZ TEH MONEYZ TO POLITICIANZ SO WHY CANTZ TEH CHURCHEZ!!!!! objection: as you're no doubt acutely aware, you are not a tax-exempt organization. Exemption from taxes isn't a right; if it were, we'd all be exempt from paying taxes. And the Trump Administration doesn't want "free speech" for churches, it wants freedom from responsibility for churches, a notion any good church would reject.
