The RoadBuilders KILL POLAR BEARS!!!

You may have differences with the RoadBuilder lobby because they really, really, really, like taking your money and stuffing it into their pockets, preferably with sneaky little "self-increasing" gasoline taxes. 

(Never mind the fact that many Wisconsin highways are deserted for most of the day; see Hy 151 southwest of Madistan and Hy 26 south of Jefferson).  But I digress.

The REAL objection to the RoadBuilders?

Concrete is the most widely used man-made material in existence. It is second only to water as the most-consumed resource on the planet.

But, while cement - the key ingredient in concrete - has shaped much of our built environment, it also has a massive carbon footprint.

Cement is the source of about 8% of the world's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, according to think tank Chatham House.

If the cement industry were a country, it would be the third largest emitter in the world - behind China and the US. It contributes more CO2 than aviation fuel (2.5%) and is not far behind the global agriculture business (12%). 
They kill baby seals, polar bears, and kittens!!!
