Compare The Candidates On Green Issues

Did you watch the first U.S. Presidential candidate debate, yet not get any questions answered about green issues?

Yeah, me too.

I would have liked to have heard a bit more about the environment, and little less about what Kissinger said and to whom.

Well, guess what? has put together an easy to understand comparison of how the different candidates stand on environmental issues.

I believe this was supposed to be primarily a foreign policy debate for the first one. Obviously, the current economic debacle took some precedence. I think they’ll get to the green issues soon enough. It’s my understanding they have a lot of common ground there.

I believe the topic of alternative energy came up a couple of times (mostly because people are concerned about the high cost of gas, which has economic and foreign relations implications) and I thought McCain said “no one is against alternative energy.” However, if this is something that is really important to you, check out the candidates’ voting records and also the local news. Just today it was announced that the Senate had passed a $634 billion spending package that included allowing offshore drilling on both the Atlantic and Pacific shores. I also saw that Congress had voted to allow giving nuclear materials to India.
