One Planet – Environment and the US Election 6th August 2008

Sorry here is a link to the latest edition of the BBC’s One Planet series, which is such a useful podcast which is not available archived on the BBC’s site.

Anyway here is the blurb ……..

The presidential election campaign in the United States is rapidly gathering pace.

Both John McCain and Barack Obama are investing large amounts of their campaign funds on adverts which paint them as the strongest choice on issues such energy security, the economy and the environment.

Chief among their target audience are residents of swing states such as Missouri as they hope to capture the electoral college votes needed to reach the White House.

But do the two candidates really differ on the environment? And when they talk about the environment, are they really talking about energy security?

For One Planet, Richard Hollingham reports from America’s mid west.
