Earth Day Special

To commemorate Earth Day, please read an essay from the National Center for Public Policy Research on the effect of tough emissions legislation on the economic fortunes of Hispanic families:

Indicators measuring the economic progress of America's Hispanic community show Hispanics are on the upswing from terrible economic lows just decades ago. Nevertheless, the Hispanic community remains at the bottom of America's socioeconomic ladder.

Enacting tough emissions restrictions on businesses will force everyone to tighten their belts, but there aren't any more notches left on the belts of many Hispanic families.
