Say No to McCain/Palin

If you have not yet decided who to vote for in the upcoming presidential election, Sen. John McCain's choice of running mate -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin -- should seal it for you. Vote NO on the McCain/Palin ticket. Sarah Palin is bad news for the environment, alongside more bad news from John McCain. She supports drilling for oil in the Arctic Refuge and along our coasts, she has not supported clean water initiatives, has been against protections for the polar bear, and declined to protect wildlife.

And how important is the environment as an issue in the grand scheme of things? Well, I rank it tops -- considering it controls your weather, your air, your health, your living conditions, the economy of today and the future, your energy, your food security, your children's future, the preservation of species and ecosystems, the ability for your children to have a safe and quality future ... and the list goes on and on.

Look here at the top 10 reasons why you should vote for the Obama/Biden ticket.

UPDATE 9/1/08: What has become increasingly clear over the last couple of days is that when you step back, the McCain/Palin ticket does not offer the necessary experience, political track record, or voice for change that we need to correct our overspending, mismanaged foreign policy and war, and destructive environmental record. Be a smart voter!

UPDATE: 9/7/08: Yet again, here's this link from Treehugger outlining Palin's blatant disrespect for the environment.
