Mr. Obama has been far from awesome this past term, but far better than Mr. Robmey would be.....

If Mitt Romney has his way, the last person on earth will be a Republican in a gas mask....clinging to his bags of money.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article. The choice is clear for anyone concerned about the environment, Obama!
Read and noted.

Thanks, got to the first bullet point that says Obama "Supports continued international efforts to forge an agreement among major world economies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, despite failure to do so in past four years." and realize what a load of bull.

Mitt Romney pposes the EPA regulating carbon dioxide emissions. Also opposes recent EPA regulations limiting emissions of mercury and other toxics from coal-fired power plants, saying the regulations would place an onerous financial burden on plant operators and “would prevent another coal plant from ever being built.”

Why aren't democrats using Romney's opposition to reducing mercury and other toxins from the air we breathe as a campaign tool? Just saying that in a flyer or ad sounds so ominous I think it would be one of a bundle of ads that would get peoples' attention to show the stark differences between the candidates.

When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.

“…One advocates federal support for renewable energy technologies, the other believes that alternative energy should sink or swim on its own merits. …”

People are generally adverse to change. So for Rmoney to say that “energy should sink or swim on its own merits” is pure ignorance. Renewable energy needs support in order to advance and flourish. It is easier for people to stick their heads in the sand and ignore the energy crisis, than it is to change their perceptions on renewable energy.

Well, Mr Obama’s record is not as strong as it could be when it comes to the environment, but he makes Rmoney look like an idiot, and incompetent! Rmoney would allow the oil and gas corporations so much latitude in the lack of proper regulation, that there would be little to regulate once the earth is raped by the corporations and people are dead from the pollution.

Get out the vote!!!!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!

Obama - the lesser of the 2 evils. Reading the comparison really shows how President Obama is trying to do what is right for America in spite of the obstructionist Congressional environment. Go Obama 2012!

Even if you honestly see him as "the lesser of two evils," you MUST vote for him to keep Romney out of the White House!

President Obama's heart is in the right place....if the Republicans hadn't been fighting him tooth & nail since day ONE....he'd have accomplished much more.

I stand with women....I stand with the environment, freedom FROM religion and I stand with equality in taxation. I stand with Obama.

Mr Romney, renewables are doable:

www.beyondzeroemissions.org

That's based on calculations by costing engineers in Australia.
We too have powerful mining billionaires that threaten to hogtie renweable clean energy
