Presidential campaign and priorities

The internet has now become a leading source of campaign news for young people. It is living up to its potential as a major source for news about the presidential campaign. Moreover, the role of social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook is a notable part of the story. As per the Pew Internet Research, 42% of those ages 18 to 29 say they regularly learn about the Presidential campaign from the internet, the highest percentage for any news source. In January 2004, just 20% of young people said they routinely got campaign news from the internet.

And here's the Environment column as to "Where do the leading presidential candidates stand on the issue of climate change and other environmental issues?"

The 2008 presidential election could very well have a big impact on a wide range of environmental issues, especially climate change. Hillary Clinton is concerned and given a prime importance to Environment as a first lady and focused on environmental effects on children’s health. She's worked with Senator Boxer to propose the Children's Environmental Protection Act, a bill to require the government to set health and safety standards at levels that protect children. Energy Independence and Global warming will be the two top most priorities for her.
A lot more what others have to say and you find the Environment column with concerns of Global warming.

The recent Fourth International Conference on Environmental Education was held in Ahmedabad from 26th-28th November for a sustainable future. Though I do not find Politicians here much involved in Environment and Global changes concerns, here's the CEE dedicated to global warming concerns. Their new project 'Increase your Handprint, decrease your Footprint' is aiming to make the world more sustainable. You need to ask yourself what you do at individual, community, national and global level. The handprint analyses your positive impact on the three aspects of sustainability: environment, society and economy. Check here for their new website to be launched and if you are a Web Designer, apply soon to join their project.

Protecting our environment with necessary safeguards is of the utmost importance. We owe a clean and pollution free environment to future generations.
