REALITY CHECK: ECOLOGY

Although everyone says they favor the environment, the issue - as important as any in our lifetime - has been mostly off the table in Congress and during the presidential campaign. Thus you will probably hear nothing during the campaign about improving rail transportation, redesigning cities and businesses so people won't have to move around them so much or the massive effects of population growth, just to mention a few issues.

Al Gore and Ralph Nader are miles ahead of Clinton, Obama and McCain on ecological matters.

Of all the mainstream media, Britain's Guardian is the best. We also like Tree Hugger and the Daily Green.

At the Review, our Sustain Yourself page has become quite popular. We also have an ecology RSS feed and a page with the latest eco-headlines as well as links to ecological groups and fact sheets.
