“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Obama and ecology

Okay everyone—what do you think of Obama's environmental policies?

If you didn't see his acceptance speech you can find it on YouTube.

He wants to increase funding for wind and solar by an awful lot, it seems. And do other things.

I write as one who persuaded his partner (now wife, Kate) to vote for Nader in 2000. (That won't be happening this time...)

If you look at Obama's web site he does have goals set up for the enviernment (unlike someone) but he has exteneded them past his term. Ithink it is better to have some goal even if it is a ittle far fetched and if the oil companys have their way he'll never be able to get electric cars on the street. I still hope he gets elected even if his goals are high.
