Hi All - - taken from the Daily Grist and intended to stir the political
Ralph Nader's contention that there is no difference between Al Gore
and George W. Bush is "irresponsible" and his campaign threatens the
environment by potentially tipping the election toward Bush, writes
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in an op-ed in today's New York Times.
Kennedy, a lawyer for the Natural Resources Defense Council and one
of Gore's most powerful enviro allies, says that Gore deserves credit
for protecting the environment against the "Gingrich Congress,"
fighting against global warming, and pushing for stronger air and
land protections. Kennedy believes that a vote for Nader is
effectively a vote for George W. Bush, who has a "famously abysmal
environmental record," and he argues that enviros who join Nader's
"personal crusade risk marginalizing the conservation movement."
