    Last months Sierra Club magazine had a good article about GOP senators and congresspersons (there were women too) who tend to vote for environmental issues. Many were active in opposing drilling in ANWR. Now if they'd just acknowledge the connection between that oil quest and the war in Iraq and increasing VMT in this country, I'd sleep better at night. I'm going to write some letters!

    I think perhaps the environmental movement has become a victim of its own success in the sense that people on both sides of the political spectrum now take good environmental stewardship for granted. Caring about the environment is so mainstream that it's no longer strictly an issue for the left.
