The Presidential Candidates on Climate Change. By Kitty Bennett and Farhana Hossain, The New York Times, September 30, 2007. "A growing environmental awareness among Americans has brought the issue to the forefront of the 2008 presidential campaign. Both Republican and Democratic candidates have been asked to explain their stance on global warming during the debates and on the campaign trail. Most of the Democrats say the United States should lead the global effort to curb greenhouse emissions and advocate federally mandated emission laws. The Republicans, many of whom are unsure about the human role in climate change, tend to emphasize energy independence and efficiency." A listing of each candidate follows, with blurbs under these headings: "STANCE ON GLOBAL WARMING AND AMERICA'S ROLE; IF ELECTED, THEY SAY THEY WOULD...; PAST ACTIONS ON THE ISSUE."

The truth about the climate crisis is an inconvenient one that means we are going to have to change the way we live our lives. Al Gore

. . . unless we advance beyond thinking only in terms of conservation and alternate sources and begin to think in terms of a carbon pie, we will have no chance to stop the rise in atmospheric CO2. Wallace S. Broecker
