Watching the debate tonight, I kept listening for some hint of the discussion of the “climate crisis”.
Why? Because the League of Conservation Voters put out a broad petition campaign to influence moderator Jim Lehrer:
But it didn’t work, not a single mention was made of, as they put it, “…the greatest challenge of our generation — climate change.”
The closest it got was when when Romney talked about the need for energy for a strong economy:
“I LIKE COAL.”
He also talked about making the XL pipeline a reality. But the real zinger was when he talked about Obama’s choices on backing green energy companies like Solyndra:
“You put $90 billion – like 50 years worth of breaks to Solyndra … I have a friend who said, ‘you don’t just the pick the winners and losers – you pick the losers,’”Romney said.
As Sheldon Cooper would say. Bazinga !
