Washington, D.C. - Though officially non-partisan, Greenpeace has called on the Democratic Party, its closest ally in Washington, to stop its assault on their mutual political foe, the GOP, inadvertently coming to their rescue in asking the Democratically controlled Congress to stop issuing subpoenas to the White House.
Greenpeace cites that the number of subpoenas issued so far has only resulted in the loss of a major portion of the Pacific Northwest lumber reserve and succeeded in reintroducing our reliance on imported lumber from abroad.
"We were once independent of foreign lumber imports from abroad, no more," said Karl Williams, Greenpeace activist. "Ever since the Democrats have retaken Congress and started issuing subpoenas, we have lost our independence, seriously damaging our ability to produce lumber domestically from renewable sources, and once again become reliant on foreign imports from the Amazon rainforest."
Greenpeace also question whether the Democrats are achieving anything politically as well.
"Whatever it is they attempted to initially accomplish by issuing so many White House subpoenas seems unclear now," confirms Steven Wagner, a political scientist from the Cassandra Institute of Foresight. "In the wake of Bush's overall lack of co-operation with the new Congress, they have reached a political impasse. Issuing any further White House subpoenas seems to be a big waste of time, really."
Greenpeace estimates halting the subpoena process will save the equivalent of one small rainforest a day, if Congress acts now.
