In these times, when corporate executives seem to have seized control of Washington D.C., there's so much garbage going on that it's often very difficult to keep track of. Here at Irregular Times, we try to cut through the clutter, giving our readers a taste of the important details while assembling the pieces of information together into
In that spirit, we provide you with the Anti-Environmental Hall of Shame, based on information compiled by the League of Conservation Voters. The following legislators are members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives who have gone so far in attacking the environment that they have a zero percent record of voting to protect clean air, clean water, and the general safety of the environment in America and around the world.
These senators and congressional representatives are not just showing a little restraint, or casting the occasional anti-environmental vote. These legislators are anti-environmental radicals who have voted to attack clean air and water at every chance they've had over the last year. They are literally playing dirty politics, voting to give special loopholes to America's worst polluters, and endangering American lives in the process.
We call this a Hall of Shame because we are ashamed to see these radicals undermining the most basic standards of modern cleanliness that Americans have come to expect. The real shame is that most voters don't know how these dirty politicians are putting their lives at risk. We hope that this list helps to change that.
