For this election, I am being political. I am supporting for the candidate that is the most likely to support binding and meaningful climate legislation: Barack Obama.
This election is not just Obama versus Romney. It is Obama versus the most profitable companies in the history of civilization: fossil fuel companies. A recent article in the New York Times called “Fossil Fuel Industry Opens Wallet to Defeat Obama” proofs this phenomenon. The fossil fuel industry has spent $153 million on ads (pro Romney), which is four times the amount spent on green energy ads. Furthermore, Romney’s campaign has accepted $13 million from fossil fuel companies, and Obama has received less than $950,000.
Now more than ever we must be political and vote for the candidate that is not swayed by partial associations and who has the greatest chance of taking serious action to mitigate climate change.
