But if we're serious about addressing global warming, then we have to focus like laser beams on the causes and the solutions. If we don't start taking action soon, very soon, it's going to be too late. I don't believe any level of government--local, state or federal--as done a good job of addressing energy.
We've got a chance in '08 to change that, at least in Washington; so I thought it would be a good exercise to see what the presidential candidates are saying about energy. No surprisingly, the Democratic candidates generally had energy positions that we more detailed and more forward thinking. I flat out had a hard time locating substantive positions on most of the Republicans.
For most candidates, I was able to find an energy or global warming position paper on their websites. For those I couldn't, I've linked to newspaper clippings. Here are the links to find out more about the candidate's positions on energy:
