Green and the 2012 Election

Four years ago, green issues were central to the 2008 campaign. An Inconvenient Truth won the Oscar. GOP nominee John McCain promoted his own Cap and Trade plan. Soon-to-be President Obama made Green Jobs his program’s centerpiece. Flash forward, 2012. The economy and jobs take center stage; the environment takes a back seat. Energy independence is supported; how we get there is debated. Voters care less about climate change; the planet is still warming. Join us for a provocative discussion on environmental policy and politics from both sides of the aisle.
