Trees a crowd says Newsweek

In Newsweek’s April 14 green cover issue, the question remains on who is the greenest among the three US presidential candidates.

According to the magazine, several green groups are having a hard time deciding whom to endorse. Obama and CLinton are said to be strong environmental candidates although McCain is reportedly also appealing to some environmentalists because of his green legislative record.

I wonder who is the most appealing green candidate for the chemical industry?

But whoever gets the job needs to have a sound environmental policy within days of his or her election, reported Newsweek, as the Kyoto Protocol is set to expire in 2009.

“The Kyoto Protocol will likely set the course of energy and technological change for the first half of the century, and if America wants to have a voice in the process, it must have leaders willing to engage in it.”

Other green articles in the issue include 10 fix tips for the planet; valuable lessons from Iceland; eco-M.B.A. talks; eco-friendly sports leagues; earth-pleasing fabrics; and the folly of green.
