It has been reported in the bible, sorry, the International Herald Tribune that presidential candidates for both the Republican and Democrat parties are taking the issue of ‘global warming’ seriously as they head towards the up and coming primary calender.
The primaries are a very US style political marathon designed to allow major political parties to road show their potential presidential candidates. States try to influence the main voting issues with these canditates by josling for position on the primaries calender. Several, including Florida and California have brought forward their primaries in an effort to ensure their citizen’s issues will influence canditates and play a vital role in the nominating process.
Within the all powerful state of California several canditates such as Clinton, McCain and Obama found themselves answering questions about what they will do to tackle ‘global warming’. California has a particularly difficult water shortage problem. State governors have a significant influence on highlighting specific issues and the Republican, Arnold Schwarzenegger intends to have the issue of global warming right up there, ‘Environmental issues. I will be relentless in the next year, almost two years, talking about these issues.’
I can feel certain fellow bloggers squirming in their seat god damn it! Oh yes, bring it on. 🙂
