As the primary season wears down and the potential nominees become more evident, I’d like to open this blog up to a discussion of what issues need to be addressed by those who actually wind up facing one another. Obviously, the ideal answers and responses to the actual answers are the stuff of Blogging. So please contribute.
Just to start the ball rolling, I’ll begin with just one topic, but all readers are invited into the discussion. For consistency, I urge any submittal to approximately follow the same format so that the information lends itself to easy reading. Thanks.
Issue: Global warming and the environment as a whole.
1) Will the U.S. enter into international treaties furthering the reduction of greenhouse gases? What circumstances would warrant not entering into such a treaty?
2) Do you believe
a) that global warming is a real phenomenon?
And (if you think it real)
b) that it is a man-made phenomenon?
#1) I hope the two major candidates in the general election both recognize the importance of international treaties and will not support one that doesn’t wish to lead efforts, including real sacrifices on the part of Americans, to gain binding agreements.
#2) I’m no longer open to arguments denying either of these points.
