from Wildlife Promise
Ed Perry is an aquatic biologist who retired in 2002 after a 30-year career with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, where he supervised the section responsible for protecting streams and wetlands. Since 2007, has traveled across Pennsylvania as an advocate for the National Wildlife Federation’s global warming campaign, educating hunters, anglers and conservationists about the effects of climate change on Pennsylvania’s fish and wildlife.
Last Thursday, I was joined by a Catholic priest, a Jewish rabbi, a life member of the National Rifle Association, a young woman being home-schooled, a fly fisherman, the director of the Lackawanna River Corridor Association, Penn Future, and members of Occupy Scranton at a rally in front of Sen. Patrick Toomey’s (R-PA) district office in Scranton.
We were there to protest the senator’s unflagging support for the fossil fuel industry. In the two years Sen. Toomey has been in office, he has repeatedly voted against the interests of his own constituents.
