I'm not going to get all down and dirty about it here on this blog...but I do want to pass on some links from Grist that help sort out where candidates stand on environmental issues - something I think we should all be considering as we sweat through the good, bad and ugly phases of this long, drawn-out campaign.
Grist's staff writer, David Roberts provides interviews and info on each of the candidates environmental positions and plans in How Green is Your Candidate. You can get a quick rundown on each candidate and if you're interested, dig deeper into voting records and current platforms or watch recent video clips. Grist will keep updating the pages as the campaign unfolds.
If you just want a quick look at where the candidates stand on climate and energy issues, check out their handy candidate comparison chart.
I've also added a widget from Grist on the lower left hand column of my blog - it contains links to all the latest green campaign news.
