Who else is considering the environment and clean energy when voting?

I just haven't seen this talked about on here. I read a letter to the editor to our local paper and someone called Obama an "enviromentalist" like it was a really bad thing.

  • Since I don't believe in global warming, this is not a real issue for me. I do want to be dependent on foreign sources of energy, but I feel like the environment is kind of a backburner issue during a time of war. I do however, worry immensely about our safety. That is why I voted for the candidate that I feel will better protect us from foreign threats. I don't want someone in office who thinks talking it out is really going to work. Lets be real, we can't all hold hands and be happy. There are some crazy people out there and we need to keep our best interests at heart.

  • The environment is definitely one of the key issues for me and my family. Don't get me wrong, there are other really important issues out there, but if we ruin our Mother Earth, those other things just won't matter. As a side note - I'm really confused when people say they don't believe in Global Warming. Even if people don't believe they have to feel that we are doing some horrible things to the earth and that something has to be done and it has to be taken seriously to protect our planet for our children and grand children...Right???

  • research global warming anon 7:14, it is definatly real. The scientist have been agreeing about it for least 10yrs now.
    I do believe that talking should have happend before we even went over there. If you here a rumor that someone hurt your child (just an example) would you go shoot them, I would hope not.
