As President, McCain will not regulate greenhouse gases

Romm writes that McCain does not support mandatory government control of greenhouse gases, something he supported before running for President. Romm also points out the fact that McCain picked a climate change denier as his running mate, that McCain failed to mention climate change in his acceptance speech and that McCain's chief economic adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin recently said that "McCain does not agree with the Supreme Court decision that labels carbon dioxide a pollutant and requiring EPA to regulate it."
The final three words were ones she added, but the prepared text alone leaves no room for doubt. A McCain-Palin administration will not be issuing new orders that businesses must follow to control greenhouse gas emissions. It will use a voluntary or incentive-based approach, one that has never worked in any country to restrain emissions growth."
Romm also points out 18 other stupid and dangerous standpoints McCain has when it comes to climate change and clean energy. Such as McCain's gas-tax holiday proposal and that he has voted against clean energy 42 out of 44 times during the past two decades.
If you care about climate change and clean energy you only have once choice, Romm writes, "and it isn't McCain-Palin."
