Republican Party platform for 2012: clean air is a liberal conspiracy...


These villains are not the antagonists you'll find in any of the most recent Batman films, but the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Action Fund's (along with Environment America) naming of 193 U.S. House members and 39 U.S. Senators as "Dirty Air Villains" are no less dangerous to the health of American's than the evil characters Bane or the Joker.

Not surprisingly, but no less disturbingly, the NRDC Action Fund analysis "found that on average, House members who took more than $100,000 in career polluter campaign contributions voted against clean air laws nearly twice as many times as those who accepted less than $100,000 from dirty industries." Similar conclusions were found for members of the U.S. Senate.

What a revelation! Money influences the votes of the U.S. Congress!

If you'd like to view more of the disturbing findings, go to, just make sure you wear a gas-mask (it really stinks!).
