2 More Election 2012 Posts (Last 2?)

 
To wrap up our election 2012 coverage (I think), I just wanted to highlight a couple more posts on this year’s presidential and congressional elections.

Solar Power World: Give President Obama Four More Years: Frank Andorka of Solar Power World carefully reviewed the energy policies of Obama and Romney (in their own words), presenting them to his readers over there in a sereis of posts. In the end, he put out a clear endorsement of Obama.

As part of that, Andorka states: “In the past four years, the solar industry has expanded exponentially to employ 100,000 people (with expansion to 110,000 by the end of 2012), President Obama has fought for polices and programs that facilitated that growth. He supported the 1603 Treasury Program, the Department of Energy Loan Guarantee program and the Department of Energy’s Sunshot Initiative. He mentions solar specifically in every speech he gives about energy, something his opponent refuses to do.”

Check it the full story (linked above) for more.

Clear Differences Between The Parties: In my final full post on the election, I noted that there are considerable differences between Republican political leadership and Democratic political leadership these days. In particular, I focused on environmental, energy, and economic issues that I think should be important to just about any human being in the United States (and many beyond it). If you’re interested in hearing even more from me on these matters than you already have, check the link above.

But what about you all? Which stories have most resonated with you? Feel free to drop links to those in the comments below, and to quote them liberally.
