Video: Vote Kids puts pressure on 2012 candidates to keep social programs in place

A group hoping to make the welfare of America’s children a national political priority is up with television advertisements in Iowa and New Hampshire that directly ask residents of the first contest states to hold 2012 presidential hopefuls accountable. Vote Kids, a nonprofit created in 2002, wants voters to tell those running for or considering running for president in 2012 to invest in and not cut programs that benefit children and families. Watch the 30-second spot, “A or B,” that is appearing in Iowa this week: “We want to bring attention to how children will be harmed as a result of federal budget proposals which already passed the House of Representatives,” said Michael Petite, president of Vote Kids

Enviro group reacts to new tar sands oil spill

Enviro group reacts to new tar sands oil spill

The National Resources Defense Council responds to the most recent spill of tar sands oil — from the very pipeline that the proposed Keystone XL line will connect to — and point out that this is just the latest in a long line of spills from a line that is less than a year old. Over the last year we’ve had many recent indications of the risks of tar sands diluted bitumen pipelines – an 840,000 gallon spill in Michigan, a 250,000 gallon spill outside Chicago, a 1.3 million gallon spill in Alberta, as well as our recent report examining the safety of tar sands pipelines . On May 7 , the Keystone tar sands pipeline provided yet another warning when it spilled approximately 21,000 gallons of crude in North Dakota. This is its eleventh and most significant spill.

AIF chief has harsh words for EPA, EarthJustice

AIF chief has harsh words for EPA, EarthJustice

In comments made to Tallahassee’s North East Business Association Tuesday, Associated Industries of Florida CEO Barney Bishop called environmental law firm EarthJustice a “liberal, left-leaning, communist-inspired environmental organization” and said that EPA chief Lisa Jackson “talks to God,” according to the Florida Tribune. # EarthJustice represented several of Florida’s leading environmental organizations in a 2008 lawsuit against the EPA, which alleged that Florida was in violation of the Clean Water Act, because it has a lack of strict water-pollution standards. After they won, the EPA agreed to propose a set of numeric nutrient criteria, which would set levels of phosphorus and nitrogen allowed in Florida waterways

Video: Herman Cain downplays race, gender in 2012

CEDAR RAPIDS — Although it was difficult to turn on the television or pick up a newspaper in the lead-up to the 2008 presidential contest without reading a story about how a woman or a black man was going to fare in Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses, Herman Cain says that particular “novelty” has passed. “I think President Barack Obama does get some credit for being the first African American running for president,” Cain told The Iowa Independent Tuesday night at a Linn County GOP chili cook-off. “It’s not talked about as much this time because the novelty of happening to be of a darker hue, or the novelty of happening to be a female isn’t as big of a news story as it might have been in 2008
