Candidate Review - The Environment - Barack Obama

One nice thing about this issue is that all of the Democrats seem aware of it. I suspect we will get a different range of responses over in Republican land. Anyway Obama is taking Environmental issues pretty seriously.
The issue of climate change is one that we ignore at our own peril. There may still be disputes about exactly how much is naturally occurring, but what we can be scientifically certain of is that our continued use of fossil fuels is pushing us to a point of no return. And unless we free ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels and chart a new course on energy in this country, we are condemning future generations to global catastrophe.
His plan, as is normal for Obama, is quite detailed. There's a lot to like in it, and it shows that he's really grappled with this issue.
