"Super Tuesday" environmental scorecard

As a civic service, EnviroWonk has tabulated each U.S. Presidential candidate's environmental stance. Perhaps you won't be surprised that the Democrats "pass" and the Republicans mostly fail, with an incomplete for McCain. Clinton likes ethanol too much, but has included some worthwhile measures. Obama's plan is quite similar to his democratic opponent.

We'd like to see a great deal more, but climate issues seem largely absent from the campaign. That's particularly true of adaptation measures.
