Here’s a quote in the book from Tony about how global warming has been affecting waterfowl: “I’ve been hunting the Missouri River for 40 years, and I could always count on birds’ being here by the first week in November. But the migration has been getting later and later. Last year we saw more ducks in the closing days of the season than we’d seen at any other time in the year. Global warming isn’t some kind of nerdy abstraction; it’s what I deal with every time I throw out my decoys.”
It's not just us hippies; even a man who made his living with shotgun and fishing rod knew that we have to take care of the planet. Whether you shoot ducks with camera or 12-gauge, you should support climate-change legislation.

That includes thousands of premature deaths from air pollution... assuming you're o.k. with putting a dollar value on individual lives.
And some of your want to use even more coal and oil?
