2008 Presidential Race Should be about Global Warming Solutions

by Jim Witkins

What's the number one challenge facing America and the rest of the world?

It's not Iraq, terrorism, homeland security or Al Qaeda.

It's not immigration, outsourcing, or job creation.

Want a hint? Al Gore and John Kerry have been talking about it for years. They are the two potential Presidential candidates most knowledgeable and up to speed on the dangers America is facing if we continue to ignore this problem.

Of course I'm talking about GLOBAL WARMING caused by our dependence and reckless use of fossil fuels.

We all know Gore has a movie on the topic, but Kerry also made it a critical component of his 2004 Presidential bid touting alternative energy Independence as both a national security strategy, a way to create jobs and lead the world in innovation, and an important step to reducing global warming causing gases.

And, yes those other problems seem more immediate and we should work to solve them, but the fact remains that the American public and business world is going about their daily routine with their heads in the sand when it comes to the consequences of Global Warming.

The problems we face today will seem like small potatoes if we don't address Global Warming immediately.

Global Warming solutions should be the focus of the 2008 US Presidential Race.

Which 2008 candidate can offer real leadership, ideas and immediate actions?

They will get my vote.
