Apparently not content just messing with substantive matters of state like health care and climate change, Republicans have brought back to the Congressional coffee shop the bane of anyone even remotely environmentally aware - styrofoam. They're also getting rid of composting, recycling and various other eminently sensible green initiatives. These people are stupid and petty. What next? Yup: lightbulbs. Sigh.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site.
