Which Democratic candidate will provide most aid and succor to our failed fossil fuel economy?
Both Hillary and Obama support cap-and-trade with auctions, says Brendan Koerner of Slate, and the essential environmental mantra "80 by 50" (80% reductions of CO2 below 1990 levels by 2050), at least in theory. "Clinton's plan is a little better on nitty-gritty details," he writes, such as "Connie Mae," a new federal agency to build green homes.
On the other hand, says How The World Works, when it comes to Big Oil campaign contributions, "Of candidates still left in the race, Hillary Clinton ($267,150) edges out John McCain ($229,685) for first place. Barack Obama is third, having only raised $128,290. Ron Paul raised $84,438; Mike Huckabee, a paltry $51,600."
