We all recognize the huge impact that comes into effect once the US adopts a strong (or weak) environmental policy. This article highlights a couple of the differences between Obama's climate change stance, which vows to reduce CO2 emissions by 80% of 1990 levels by 2050 (remember Step It Up? led by a group of student activists from VT's own Middlebury College) versus the 60% mark McCain hopes for.
If we stop for a minute to consider how all-encompassing this sort of legislation will be, we will note that every small bit of work we do from little ol' Vermont to help advocate for the needs of the poorest communities all over the world has a profound impact. That certainly keeps me going! Let's continue to make sure that Bernie, Leahy, and Welch know we care!
Have a great Independence Day.
