Here is a better insight on Obama and McCain’s green positions from Sustainablebusiness.com
McCain is said to have a 24% green voting record while Obama has an 87% green voting record according to the League of Conservation (LCV) Voters Scorecard. Also, the oil and gas industry reportedly donated $1.7 million to Senator McCain and $500 thousand to Senator Obama.
“The 110th Congress began with great promise of bringing about a new energy economy, especially with the first increase in fuel economy of cars and light trucks in a generation,” said LCV Legislative Director Tiernan Sittenfeld. “The success of 2007 should have led to even more progress in 2008, but a vocal minority of Big Oil allies instead turned the year into a series of missed opportunities and major steps backward.”
