If you listen to the McCain campaign, nuclear power is a key solution to our energy dependence and global warming woes. Remove a few regulations here, provide some tax credits there, and poof! — energy independence, clean power and new jobs flow forth like oil through a pipeline.

In an interview that aired on CNN Tuesday night, the Republican candidate for vice-president Sarah Palin seemed to stumble while trying to recall the name of the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission – a commission she often tells us she chaired for two years.
The Illinois voter registration materials sent to “Princess Nudelman,” a deceased pet goldfish, have stirred up some controversy in the hometown of Barack Obama.
the commenting has begun in Red, Green and Blue’s and ReframeIt’s Green Economy Scavenger Hunt. Remember: $1000 dollars and a guest post at RG&B is up for grabs for the person who creates the best body of finds and comments related to the growth of the green economy, and the presidential candidates’ approaches to doing that.
Palin’s appearance on the popular sketch comedy show brought it to its highest rating in fourteen years, Reuters. The figures make it the highest-rated SNL since March 12, 1994. Although Nielsen Media Research won’t have a complete count of the show’s audience until later in the week, it will likely be around 14 million people — and 17 million for the first half hour, with the opening skit featuring Palin’s cameo.
We’ve suffered through too much of this cowboy politics crap (pun intended) to allow it to happen again.
In one of a couple appearances on this week’s Saturday Night Live, Alaska governor and Republican candidate for vice-president, Sarah Palin joined Seth Myers and Amy Poehler to do a bit on SNL’s mock-news, Weekend Update.
The beluga whales of Alaska’s Cook Inlet have been listed as an endangered species by the U.S. Government. The ruling contradicts Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s administration who has questioned the science showing a decline in the distinctive white species.
Forget all the wars. The WWF says that what’s most threatening to the future of humans is climate change, natural resource exhaustion and ecosystem collapse, according to its recently released “Greenprint.”
…beneath that fuzzy outfit lies the heart of a Pinko rat!
The Republican ticket is correct in asserting that John McCain stood up to the Senate’s GOP leadership, sponsoring, with Joe Lieberman, the Climate Stewardship Act that calls for a cap and trade system to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
That’s it? Surely they’ve said something else about energy or the environment that isn’t wrong?

If you watched last night’s debate, you heard the question: What will you do in your first term to reduce our dependence on foreign oil?
Did either candidate actually answer the question? Not really. But here’s why McCain’s answer of offshore-drilling-nuclear-power-wind-solar-geothermal-natural-gas is completely bogus.
After another tumultuous day in the market with the worst one-day percentage declines since the crash of 1987, addressing the state of the U.S. Economy was supposed to be foremost for both candidates in an effort to win the votes of undecided and independent voters. Advisers for each candidate said that he would use the final debate to lay out his vision for the country and promote his economic policies while drawing differences with his opponent.
We have one simple question for you: Who won the final presidential debate on Wednesday?
“Drill, baby, drill” is not an energy policy, and it will never make us energy independent. US oil production peaked in 1970 at more than 11 million barrels a day, ironically just three years before the oil crisis.
