McCain Bad on Environment

RECEIVED Sat., March 1, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Because Austinites care a lot about environmental concerns, I think they should know this.
    Two weeks ago John McCain was the only senator to duck a crucial vote on the future of clean energy in America – dooming to failure the measure that would have helped make renewable energy more affordable and accessible. Now it turns out this missed vote is part of a pattern.
    Last week, the League of Conservation Voters released the 2007 National Environmental Scorecard giving Sen. McCain a score of zero. According to the scorecard, McCain was the only member of Congress to skip all 15 crucial environmental votes scored by LCV.
