    Uh... most of the deregulation crowd including Bob (it was an earthquake) Murray, Mike Noel, Rob Bishop, to many to in Utah to list.

    Tabuno nailed it, of course we had legislators that thought it was a good idea for Browning Rifle and MLK should share a holiday?

    Earth Day has become just as politicized as this poster contest. If you want to get rid of poster contests sponsored by the mining lobby, fine. But you should get rid of Earth Day celebrations too.

    The benefits of fossil fuels is not at issue here. The problem is with the focus on the benefits of fossil fuels on Earth Day does not reflect the intent or purpose of Earth Day no matter how people try to spin it. While smoking tobacco provides jobs to laborers in Southern States and calms millions of people under stress, problem here is like celebrating the benefits of smoking tobacco on a Cancer walkathon.

    We do need to mine, and we ought to do it in a
    environmentally responsible manner.

    Who disagrees with this?
