Campaign politics dominated the headlines in 2008, making it a banner year for the armchair pundit. 2008 was also a year that issues like energy use, climate change and carbon footprints came to the forefront of popular culture and political reality. Put all of that together and you have 2008’s top environmental politics stories.
Haven’t had enough of the 2008 presidential election? Well, you’re in luck. The folks over at Talking Points Memo have compiled the highs and the lows, the soundbites, and, of course, the Joe the Plumber references and condensed them into one six-minute video.

Sarah Palin quotes from across the spectrum: from man not causing global warming, to the war in Iraq being a task from God, and how offshore drilling will save us – she says it all. 1.

The baby bear had been shot in the head and left on the campus of Western Carolina University. Obama yard signs had been stapled together and put over the dead bear’s head. Was this just a sick fraternity prank or a twisted statement of support of the McCain/Palin ticket?
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.
We’ve suffered through too much of this cowboy politics crap (pun intended) to allow it to happen again.

I’ve long suspected I live in a political bubble in Northern California. The debates I hear among friends is whether to vote for Obama, Nader, or McKinney. I’ve never even seen a McCain/Palin yard sign or bumper sticker, but I knew that was all going to change when I traveled to Northern Ohio for my grandmother’s funeral.

They’re also largely in agreement over reducing oil consumption and investing in new energy technologies.
Just over two weeks ago, we announced the Red, Green and Blue/ReframeIt scavenger hunt for details and background on Barack Obama’s and John McCain’s energy and environmental policy proposals. Then the economy went to hell… so we’re offering a little economic stimulus of our own.
With only four weeks to go until Election Day (November 4th if you’ve been living under a rock), now seems like an excellent time to check in and see how the candidates are faring.
