Obviously, many people are basing their vote on Barack Obama and John McCain’s ideas for our economy. What baffles me is we have solutions to not only this problem, but the biggest issue facing our world: global warming.
Global warming is happening in everyone’s backyard, and our leaders could be doing something to not only stop it, but to stop the economic crisis also.
According to a report recently released by the Center for American Progress and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, in Kansas alone we have the potential to create more than 19,000 jobs in two years and more than 2 million jobs nationwide. If I were a presidential candidate, people couldn’t stop me from talking about green-collar jobs.
If we are going to eliminate both the moral and monetary debt we are handing our children, our current and future leadership must match the dedication that individual citizens are already committed to making.
