  •  I am a climate change voter (0+ / 0-)

    If Romney pledged to deal robustly and Obama didn't, I would vote for Romney.  No question.

    No other issue comes close to it in importance.  Not even all other issues put together

    It is a boutique issue until people's kids can't eat because crops have been devastated

    What ignoramuses the press are.   But we knew that

      Mitt was telling the truth?

      I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.

      has some interesting graphics, polls and all that good stuff, on how Undecideds & Indies feel about it.

      Is Climate Change the Sleeper Issue of 2012?

      for example...

      In a survey of 1,204 likely voters in May 2012, Maxfield found that a "clean energy" candidate fared better than an "all-of-the-above" candidate who supported a variety of energy choices—coal, drilling, and also clean energy.
      Spoiler Alert: the hippies were right again.

      Climate Change needs to dig its way out of the boutique basement and back up to front and center.

    •  Mitt will never be robust on climate or anything (0+ / 0-)

      else..ever.  He wants more coal, more oil, more gas, more drilling, fewer regulations and his entire party does not believe in climate change. They will do nothing about it...they are all in for oil and coal.

      conservative policies. It may not in the best case, but it certainly can't under Republicans.

      It's not physically possible to vote both Republican and in favor of addressing climate change.

      •  I was speaking hypothetically (0+ / 0-)

        In this election, Romney named the bearded Spock as his runnning mate.

        (Although remember that Nixon played his role in environmental reguation, way back when.  And then there's Teddy!)
