Yesterday's climate-legislation rally not so spontaneous
Arguments continue about just how grassrootsprotests against healthcare reform like a recent shoutfest at an Ed Perlmutter event
really are. But such displays of disaffection are positively organic in comparison with the rally about climate legislation that took place yesterday in Greeley.The Greeley Tribune reports
that hundreds of locals raised their voices in unison against a U.S. House-passed bill that would cap greenhouse gas emissions. But the event was promoted byEnergyCitizens.org
, a creation of theAmerican Petroleum Institute
that's staging demonstrations like the Greeley bash all over the country. A video from a kick-off rally in Houston can be viewed above. Looks like an impromptu uprising to me.
