A. Regionalist party members have organized to oppose industrial interests on several other issues. Several other issues does not include the issue at hand, ie a new recycling law that would protect the environment from industrial interests

B. Industrial interests need not oppose the protection of the environment. Out of scope, doesnt affect the conclusion!

C. Past attempts to protect the environment through recycling laws have failed. Does not affect the conclusion!

D. It is possible that some Regionalist party members may not oppose the bill for a new recycling law. Just what we were looking for. This explains why the conclusion is invalidly drawn!

E. Ellen has attended programs and distributed literature prepared by the Regionalist party. Does not affect the conclusion!
