Obama to Ban Sports Fishing? Really????

According to Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, President Obama is moving to ban sports fishing. They are, of course, outraged. Check out Glenn and Rush. But come back and read more.

According to the International Game and Fish Association, conservation efforts are needed to insure that the next generations know what fish even tastes like. No matter. Did you listen to Beck? What’s more important? The fish or your right to fish?

And how about Rush? Obama can do whatever he wants to do.

People actually listen to these two. They get the information they use to vote at the polls for the people who will lead our country from these guys. Is it any wonder so many Americans believe that it’s arrogant and unchristian to believe that man has anything to do with climate change or global warming, but instead would rather embrace the idea that it’s a sign of the End of Days?

So, a few of us have gotten a chuckle today from Glenn and Rush. But a lot of people have listened, believed, and emailed and tweeted their broadcasts to other like minded voters.

What have you done today to stop the flood of misinformation that is contributing to a global environmental crisis?

Some ideas: When you see an article about a cause you believe in, with credible information, reliable sources and common sense ideas, post the link on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, or and other social media.

If you have a blog, write about the article, linking to scientific studies and credible organizations.

Talk it up at the water fountain.

Don’t let American voters be educated by clowns.
