Survey: Who Do You Agree With? Who Said What


In yesterday's survey we asked you to pick the candidate's statement that most closely matched your views; today we reveal who said what. One commenter noted that we were not fair to John Edwards and picked a lousy quote from him; we concur, and in the next instalment will go back to the websites of the candidates instead of using secondary sources (rather than as the commenter suggested, "hang up the keyboard now and get out of the blog gig." Percentages of vote are at time of this post and may change.

1) 42%: Hillary Clinton: The risks of inaction are abundantly clear. The consequences are so dire that this election has to focus on this issue. We cannot afford to fiddle while the world warms because we've already seen and we know conclusively what that will do to us.

2) 23% Dennis Kucinich We have to understand the connection between global warring and global warming. We need to move away from reliance on oil and coal and toward reliance on wind and solar.

3) 18% Mike Huckabee whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientists, but it is all of our responsibilities to leave this planet in better shape for future generations than we found it.

4) 10% Barack Obama: We are not acting as good stewards of God's Earth when our bottom line puts the size of our profits before the future of our planet.
