According to the League of Conservation Voters Environmental Scorecard, my Congressman, Dana Rohrabacher received a score of TEN for his deplorable voting record on environmental issues.


So today I sent him the following email:


Dear Rep. Rohrbacher -


Because elected official's voting records are very important to me, I have reviewed the League of Conservation Voters Scorecard and was appalled to find that you have been given a score of Ten. Given that your district includes many environmentally sensitive areas, this score is appalling. As Rep. Richard Pombo discovered, California voters care about the environment. I urge you to improve your voting record on environmental issues.

Signed, Me


The chances of his responding are less than my chances of winning the lottery this week.

By the way, Senator John McCain received a score of ZERO. According to the scorecard, McCain was the only member of Congress to skip all 15 crucial environmental votes scored by LCV.

Hillary Clinton scored a 73, and Barack Obama scored a 67. While Obama only voted once in a way that was classified anti-environment, he was absent for 4 key environmental votes. Clinton also was absent for 4 votes. They have room for improvement, as well.

Those are interesting stats! Clearly they all have room for improvement! Its disappointing that McCain didn't even vote.

Was it a Strongly Worded Letter you wrote? Thanks for the info on the stats. It's good to know. Especially considering people who should be more environmentally involved basically scored the equivalent of a C or D grade. Embarrassing.

This is such a serious issue that one would expect more from these guys. New England has generally been green for decades. But much of that has to do with acid rain and not global warming.

This is interesting, thanks for the links and let us know what you hear from your member of congress.

Even more interesting is the fact that my Republican representative scored higher (he had a 70) than either of my Democratic Senators (they both had a 67). Looks like the elected officals here are solidily in the D to C-category.
