2008 Elections

John Edwards on Environment and Energy


(John Edwards suspended his race for the Democratic nomination on Jan. 30, following coming in third place in three contests, including his home state of South Carolina.)

We must halt global warming. It is the great moral test of our generation and will require same kind of patriotism that Americans feel about going to war. It will require Americans to sacrifice and alter their behavior by conserving in their homes and driving more fuel efficient vehicles. No more nuclear power plants should be built. There should be a moratorium on the building of new coal-fired power plants unless and until we have the capacity to capture the carbon and sequester it under the ground.


Edwards' campaign Web site: A new energy economy
The Edwards Plan halts global warming, achieves energy independence and jump starts a new energy economy by capping greenhouse gas pollution, leading the world to a new climate treaty, creating a new energy economy and meeting the demand for more electricity through efficiency.
