The U.S. House of Representatives will begin debate this week on, H.R. 2584, an environmental spending bill that is one of the worst assaults on birds and other wildlife ever to come before Congress, according to American Bird Conservancy (ABC), the nation’s leading bird conservation organization.

“The bill is loaded with devastating funding cuts and anti-environmental provisions that will wreak havoc on our land, water, air, and wildlife,” says Darin Schroeder, Vice President of Conservation Advocacy for ABC. “Birds will be particularly hard hit by this bill.”

I would suggest that we all write our congressmen to tell them how much we loathe this bill.  You can find your congressperson’s contact by state and zip code HERE.  You can also find their phone numbers in an alphabetical listing HERE.

It really does sound horrible. I have already sent my letter.

It’s a shame that spending cuts are not made in programs that actually work and are beneficial, rather than in areas of real waste and frivolity.

Will humans ever learn?
Will politicians ever put greed aside and wake up before it’s too late?
