McCain Pledges to Combat Climate Change

PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) - Republican John McCain, differing sharply with President George W. Bush, said on Monday he would pursue mandatory U.S. curbs on greenhouse gas emissions if he wins the White House in November.

"The facts of global warming demand our urgent attention, especially in Washington," McCain told an audience at the Vestas Wind Technology plant in Portland, where he signed the blade of a giant wind turbine and chatted with service technicians.

Smart old man in my oppinion, other than the fact that he wants to keep the troops in Iraq. Maybe he'll change his minds on his statements about Iraq before the elections as well, and maybe then he'll win the elections.

Will he bind America to the Kyoto Protocol? Well, that sounds more like a democrat thing, but McCain apparently only wants to win the elections.

I'm certainly no fan of Republicans, but to be fair, some of the best leaders the world has ever had, have had some pretty bad vices.
Some of the worlds worst leaders were squeaky clean.

So, when choosing a leader, basing your opinion on their personal life is baseless.

However, seeing as McCain belongs to the same organization that has permitted and stood behind Bush as he has destroyed so many of the freedoms the US held dear... I can't see him restoring any of those freedoms.

Unfortunately, it's not likely anyone will.

Once a countries freedoms start being taken away, no matter how small or trivial. They will continue to be taken away. Each consecutive leader will likely state "My predecessor took this many freedoms away, so this little one is trivial."

The US needs an overhaul. It's a mockery of the free nations. I have met no-one in recent years from other free countries that will still acknowledge the US as a fellow free nation. Which is a pity, considering they used to be one of the leading examples.

I would suggest dividing the two parties into four, introducing another two independent parties, and placing heavy restrictions on the decisions a president is permitted to make.
President... it's not really a president anymore is it? It's more of a 4 year elected dictator.

Smart old man in my oppinion,

Don't be fooled.. Just political pandering to the more moderate democrats. At the moment, climate change is the last thing on anyone's mind. There's tough hurdles ahead for this planet and I think that climate change isn't at the top of the list.

McCain saying that was like Hillary's deserpation appeal to the right when she talked about obliterating Iran.

I am with you. This is just pandering for votes. He will continue to cut the large corporations breaks, just like the current administration. I would have to bet that his version of cutting emissions will be to impose some sort of tax on consumers, not on corporations.

Let's focus our efforts on real solutions instead of the band-aid fixes these guys are looking at.

A kinder gentler republican. Feeding baby squirrels out his hand. Ya right. No talk of finally joining the Kiyoto treaty though. LOL. I've been saying this for years. We need a new, or two or three more new political parties.
The entire election process needs overhaul. The millions spent on drivel. It's sickening.
