Edwards Addresses Global WarmingBy CAIN BURDEAU – November 3, 2007

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards on Saturday called reversing global warming a “great moral test” and said the next president needs to stand up to industries resisting change.

“This is the great moral test of our generation. Are we actually going to leave this planet and America better for our children than we found it?” Edwards said at an environmental rally in New Orleans.

“Why have we not addressed the issue of climate change and global warming?” Edwards said. “I’ll tell you why, no question about it: oil companies, gas companies, power companies and the lobbyists in Washington, D.C. We have to have a president who will stand up to these people.”

😐 I am not sure if he is the only presidential candidate talking so aggressively towards the fossil fuel industry and lobbyists like this. Is he?

  1. He’s done it the most of the top three candidates. Where he’s led, the others have followed – Clinton just came out with a similar plan today.

    The story of the overall campaign this year.

  2. I really like Edward’s stance on this issue and on gay rights. I believe he would make the best candidate from the Democratic field, but I suspect that Hillary will get the nomination.
