At an event here in Aspen, asked about global warming, something very close to: “I’ve been a supporter of the President … but this administration has betrayed the tradition of Theodore Roosevelt.” Indeed.

Strong, clear, passionate, and able to say things people don’t want to hear.

  • Matt Stoller

    Which is why McCain supports a war that costs 400,000 in barrels of oil burned by the American military in Iraq every single day. Come on.

    Acknowledging global warming to elite opinion without decrying the Iraq war is the opposite of being willing to speak hard truth. And attacking an administration with an approval rating in the 30s… how is that speaking the hard truth?

    McCain deserves no kudos after pushing for the anti-free speech McCain-Feingold law. For that alone, he’s a waste of oxygen

    There’s a lot I like about John McCain, but (even if I were in the USA) I don’t think I could ever support him because he introduced and supported CIPA, the law that now requires US libraries to filter their Internet connections.

    “Strong, clear, passionate, and able to say things people don�t want to hear.”

    And able to say such things regardless of whether they are true.

    Truth to John McCain is anything that benefits John McCain.

    To Matt Stoller

    The statement that the bush government has betrayed the T Roosevelt tradition is obviously a reference to the national parks and environmental movement he support.

    But I note that TR also said “The flag of the United States stands for liberty and wherever that flag flies tyranny shall not return.”

    It seems to me that conflict in Iraq would be exactly what Roosevelt would want. So McCain is wrong. Ironically, when Republicans talk about the environment they are invariably same.

    Umm, the US flag was not flying in iraq to begin with, ACS. But i guess if you’re into killing innocent people in the name of capitalism and greed that makes you a picture-perfect-american-flag-waver! US citizens can’t count on their media or government to tell them the truth, and now we expect them to be respectful and give thought to the environment? Come on, now…

    Yeah, criticizing a wildly unpopular president on the issue everyone — including his evangelical base — is a really out there and dangerous move.

    McCain jumped the shark when he started kissing Jerry Falwell’s ring. He is just another smarmy politician trying to maintain the appearance of independence.

    I have to agree there. I used to be a “fan” but his overt social conservatism puts me off like the stink of a 3 day corpse… which isn’t to say I am any greater a fan (or fan at all) of that other, allegedly competitive, social conservative senator from NY…

    Oh Liberty, we hardly knew ye…

    To deal with global warming, the government needs to immediately plant more trees, and stop cutting them down. It is a major problem they need to deal with. The importance of trees has been understated by “scientists” that truly dont understand the relevance of trees. Dont criticize the importance of the concept until you know all the facts. On top of deforestation, we are polluting the environment. Another contributing factor is modern day energy systems rely on explosion rather than implosion, and this generates heat. Every systems need to be more efficient and work on implosion, so they stay cool. The non-profit energy research organization at http://www.universalsymbiosis.org is active in these areas which will help reverse effects of global warming. I suggest everyone also read “Living Energies” by Callum Coats which explains the work of Victor Schauberger and the importance of trees to our planet. Dont rely on information from the authorities as their advisors dont fully understand the life cycle of the planet. We need to push the authorities to develop forest management and sustainability plans, and this will solve at least part of the problem.
