New research has revealed that emperor penguins move around within their huddles to ensure that in the bitter Antarctic cold each bird gets a turn in the warmth of the inner circle.
Just like penguins protect their own, Governor Perdue can protect the residents of North Carolina by rejecting legislation to bring state environmental protections down to the federal minimum.
SB 781 claims to increase regulatory efficiency to balance job creation and environmental protection. But environmental advocates argue that it is among the most destructive bills in this session and will eliminate key environmental and public health protections. The legislation adds more bureaucracy to changing state regulations, making it more difficult for public participation in the process.
Governor Perdue – Stand up to polluters and greed – veto the Regulatory Reform Act.
Emperor penguins protect their own – so should we.
