Sign the MoveON peition against Judge John G. Roberts
He thinks that Congress doesn't have the power to protect the enivronment with laws like "The Endangered Species Act."

www.moveon.org

From the NY Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/20/opinion/20wed1.html

"If extremists take control of the Supreme Court, we will end up with an America in which the federal government is powerless to protect against air pollution, unsafe working conditions and child labor. There are reasons to be concerned about Judge Roberts on this score. He dissented in an Endangered Species Act case in a way that suggested he might hold an array of environmental laws, and other important federal protections, to be unconstitutional."

1. I Don't Understand Conswervatives
First they say judges shouldn't "legislate from the bench" (whatever the heck that is) they say if people want social change, etc. it needs to come from Congress. Then, they say Congress doesn't have the power to do this, that the other.

I think we should at least raise this point in confirmation hearings.
