While reading the front page of The Sun the article on the loss of amphibians ("Alarming U.S. decline in environment's sentinels," May 23), I heard on the radio that Congress is trying to assure construction of the Alberta tar sands pipeline.
About two weeks ago, scientists reported that the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere had reached 400 parts per million. There has been a chance that the percentage of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere could at least be stabilized, but with the construction of the pipeline this would no longer be possible.
If Congress is able to get the Keystone XL pipeline constructed I would like so see the names of all people who voted for this carved in stone so that they be identified for eternity for anyone or anything that can read them.
