  1. I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming.

    The Daily Green just put an article out talking about how the presidential candidates are not being asked where they stand on the issue of the climate change – this is surprising to me considering its such a MAJOR concern to people. I just saw a poll on http://www.EarthLab.com that says people care a lot what their next leader thinks about global warming (after you take it they show you the results). Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

    If not, go to http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx and take their poll to see which way the results go. This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. No matter which political party you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.

    First off, thank you for the wonderful compliment concerning my efforts with this blog!

    You are absolutely correct about the media’s poor coverage about the candidates positions and censorship.

    The more I research what is going on with this presidential race, the more disgusted I get. The extent to which we are being spoon fed the corporate line in this nation is appalling! I wonder when exactly did we take this major turn down this dark path. Please check out Dennis Kucinich’s
    stand on the issues. You will find that on the front page of this blog in the blogroll down the right side of the blog.

    Kucinich’s stand on environmental issues is probably one of the biggest reasons he was excluded from the Nevada presidential debate. Kucinich is quite outspoken about a few issues that are clearly not in major corporate interests mostly because of his humanistic views on civil rights, democracy, upholding the Constitution, and integrity, among others issues.

    The debate was spoon fed to us by MSNBC/NBC – owned by GE, one of the largest polluters in the world. Checking around on the internet you will note that they have a clouded past with respect to environmental issues. Nevada is the state where much nuclear waste is dumped.

    I think the old saying, “Don’t ask a question that you don’t want an answer to” clearly applies in why environmental issues were not included in the question presented to the debating candidates. I’m sure, that since GE was the financier behind the debate, they clearly wouldn’t want their laundry aired. I would even stretch to say, that the candidates allowed to debate knew topics that were to be “off limits”.

    The environment is a major issue among folks, as is impeachment, and Iraq. When you see these issues fading to the back pages of mainstream news, one just has to think. There is major movement about impeachment in progress, however you won’t find it in any of the mainstream rags and you won’t find it searching Google. How could that be? So goes environmental issues.
