    ... the environment. His Action Blue Sky campaign smacks of gimmickry over strong government. Asking everyone to voluntarily cut back on energy use to fight pollution is like trying to put out a raging fire by urging us all to dribble our cups of tea on it. His combination of voluntary measures plus a lengthy study on how best to fight pollution does not amount to real action. It makes him look like ...
