Obama v. McCain on the Environment

A lot of people have asked me for details on both Barack Obama and John McCain's positions on the environment. In an election year, it can be difficult to get a straight answer on anything. In my fairly limited experience, an Administration's impact on the environment and our public lands is largely determined by the people the President appoints to key positions at EPA, Interior, and the land management agencies (BLM, Forest Service, Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service). It's too early to tell who these appointees might be, but Greenwire recently published a good account of who is advising the respective campaigns on environmental issues. Check it out.
