Well, at least the guy has a cause though I think it might be a little misguided.

re: Why I voted for Obama


That's another problem, claiming CO2 is a pollutant. Not even proponents of Climate Change (CERN and NASA for two examples) still claim that CO2 is a root cause or even a major contributing factor. If you studied ice core data, you'd know that CO2 is, at best, a lagging indicator of climate change (and not a very reliable one at that) as it often doesn't correlate. There are many periods throughout time when CO2 increases and temperatures decrease and vise-versa. You would know that if you looked past the biased UN and Al Gore climate data and researched it yourself.

The problem is when politicians try to coerce scientists (through grant money and prestige) to tow a party line so as to grant more power to themselves. If there was a true solution to climate change, it wouldn't be some poorly veiled attempt at redistribution of wealth through the destruction of our energy industry. It would be through planting more forests, monitoring more potent green-house gasses like Methane, monitoring salt water content in the North Atlantic, and generally being responsible with our planet, not trying to cripple political opposition and big business to enrich yourself.

Did you know that Al Gore and Goldmen Sachs own more than a 50% share in the Carbon Exchange Market in Chicago? That would mean that if Cap and Trade became law, they would net multi-billions. Did you also know that Cap and Trade was tried in Europe and failed miserably as Carbon Emissions increased and the exchange created a bubble that soon popped? Do some research on your own next time some Liberal Democrat tries to tell you they're going to save the planet.

The problem with the EPA under the Obama administration is that their regulations aren't designed to protect the environment. In fact, most of them won't save a single tree or animal. Most of their regs are designed to punish businesses, reward cronies, punish political enemies, and expand the power of the agency.

This.

Neither party is perfect. Both parties have candidates who are hypocritical. Obama has many flaws as does Romney. Remember these guys are politicians not angels.

No, you aren't.

and continues to be, a party that denies the relevance of protecting ecosystems and therefore the wildlife that goes with it.

Can't argue with that. However, that's because they've steered from capitalism; not because they don't support the ridiculous policies you favor.

Wow, so is Obama. He just hunts people with drones

cutting funds for “big” government organizations that work towards conservation
Here's an idea. Why don't these organizations convince me that giving them money is a good idea? Or is it better/easier to just lobby the government so the government thugs can steal the money from me?

but I just wanted to offer up something else for the majority of posters on here to think about other than ... taxes
But you just said you were in support of ... ah, frick it, nevermind.

I've come to the conclusion that you were right all along.
