Carbon Dioxide Letter in the Illinois Times

I did a blog post the old fashioned way by getting a letter to the editor published in the Illinois Times about the Competitive Enterprise Institute's advertisements on Carbon Dioxide pollution. You can read more about my campaign activities at my blog: http://www.thereisaway.us

Here's the letter:

THE REAL STORY ABOUT COAL POWER

Recently I went online to view ads about carbon dioxide pollution from coal power plants produced by a corporate advocacy group called the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The CEI sent out a press release claiming the ads would run in the Springfield area, but no one I know has seen them on television. One of the most hilariously ridiculous suggestions made in the slick ads is that carbon dioxide pollution must be good for the environment because it comes out of our bodies. Feces and urine come from the body as well, but that doesn’t mean I want them in my drinking water. Apparently Americans have been wasting billions of dollars on sewage and waste-treatment systems for years, because, according to these ads, anything that the body excretes must be good for us.
