Republic veep nominee Paul Ryan – an oil man at heart

Treehugger reports that Republican Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan has so far   accepted nearly $245,000 from the oil and gas industries and it may come as no surprise that his record on green issues is patchy, to say the least

This on climate change “These e-mails from leading climatologists make clear efforts to use statistical tricks to distort their findings and intentionally mislead the public on the issue of climate change.”

And Mr Ryan’s voting record speaks for itself:

  • Voted YES on opening Outer Continental Shelf to oil drilling.
  • Voted YES on barring EPA from regulating greenhouse gases.
  • Voted NO on enforcing limits on CO2 global warming pollution.
  • Voted NO on tax credits for renewable electricity, with PAYGO offsets

Good Luck America – I think we all need it.
