I recommend a second Tea Party called the Green Tea Party. I believe this is timely since Waxman is holding hearings in congress to move forward with a very aggressive energy bill. This bill would put a huge strain on an already strained economy. Some estimates say it would raise utility bills by as much as $3000 per household. This doesn’t take into consideration that costs for every product manufactured in this country would go up significantly. Supporters of this bill scoff at both suggestions.

There are examples, like Spain, where studies show huge jobs losses and unbearable costs for each new green job produced. 

I don’t believe congress will present the truth. Too many are too dependent on the environmental vote. I don’t believe the president will seek the truth. 

In addition, there are other questions I would like to have answered. When Drill Here, Drill Now presented millions of petitions to Washington last fall, candidate Obama went on record saying he favored drilling here. When do we start?

I want the EPA to measure the mercury in landfills. Enough CFL bulbs have gone there and been broken by now to determine whether this is doing significant damage. I want to know. 

I want to know what the water conservationalists are saying about a report that says it takes 1,000 gallons of water to produce one gallon of ethanol. 

I want to know if there is any concern about the new round of refinery closings in the U.S. Just last year President Bush was suggesting we build refineries on military bases.

I think a Green Tea Party would bring out as many or more than the 1,000,000 who came to the Tea Parties.
