All that I will say about the election

While Internet pundits dissect the election, I just wish to point out that neither national party seems to recognize that environmental protection is a bipartisan issue. Bush's lame response in the last debate about off-road diesel engines, and Kerry's failure to exploit the issue are both symptomatic.

Here in Colorado, for example, an amendment requiring utility companies to generate and/or buy a percentage of their electricity from renewable sources (wind or solar, primarily), passed even while the state went for President Bush.

Likewise, the Salazar brothers, Ken and John, who both stressed environmental protection and opposition to big, expensive water projects in their respective campaigns for the U.S. Senate and House were elected as Democrats in our "red" state.
