Bush-Kerry Debate: The Missing Issue
"The environment surfaced as a test of values and faith in Wednesday's third debate between the presidential candidates, although it represented a missed opportunity to discuss more in depth the single issue that most clearly separates the two men. As was shown at the second debate -- the town hall meeting -- real people do care about the environment, and about how the Bush administration's actions are undermining 40 years of bipartisan protection of our health and quality of life.
Moral reasons and concern for future generations are among the reasons most often cited by Americans for protecting the environment, well ahead of pragmatic reasons, although most say they believe a healthy economy and a healthy environment go hand in hand...
In general, however, the environment was the missing issue tonight..."
