Zero on Environmental Scorcard for McCain

The League of Conservation Voters recently released their 2007 Environmental Scorecard which rates Senate and House members’ environmental concerns based on their votes over 2007. John McCain scored an astounding zero by skipping all fifteen votes that the League of Conservation Voters tracked according to their pro/anti-environmental focus.

I think we can all agree that 2007 saw some incredible strides on environmental issues from our elected officials, but there is still an enormous amount of work to be done before we can begin to solve our energy crisis, global warming, and other issues regarding environmental pollutants. Can we really afford to elect a president who has made no effort to show an interest in these issues?

Here are LCV’s ratings for the remaining Democratic and Republican presidential hopefuls:

John McCain – 0%
Barack Obama – 67%
Hillary Clinton – 73%

(Mike Huckabee was not included as he was neither a member of the House or Senate in 2007.)
