Amer­ica de­cides

Down to Earth - - EDITOR’S PAGE -

It is de­ci­sion time in Amer­ica. The two ri­val can­di­dates hold firm views vis-a-vis cli­mate change. While Hil­lary Clin­ton is a be­liever, Don­ald Trump is ka de­niery. Who will be bet­ter for the global fight against cli­mate change? Fif­teen years ago, af­ter the poll be­tween Al Gore and Ge­orge W Bush ended in a Bush vic­tory, Down To Earth noted in kBet­ter the devil you knowy (1-15 Jan­uary, 2001): kThere are os­triches with their head in the sand, like Bush, who openly op­pose com­mon sense. And then there are those (like Gore) who give the im­pres­sion of be­ing on the right side of the moral and eco­log­i­cal bal­ance, and yet end up serv­ing busi­ness in­ter­ests.y Re­gard­less of who wins, the fight against cli­mate change has to go on.
