Greening The White House
Reuters has an article on which candidate is better for the environment. I will not quote the parts where the article says the are almost the same. I will not quote the lies about how John McCain is different from the other republicans. I will quote the last graph, the one about their actual voting record.
Contrasting with McCain's vice presidential pick, Obama's running mate is Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, whose rating by the League of Conservation Voters is identical to Obama's: both voted for the environment 67 percent of the time in 2007. McCain's rating by the league is zero for last year.

You have to be careful with the mainstream media. The answer partly in the article but not till the last graph. I think the biggest omission was the renewable energy tax credits votes this year. Obama and Biden voted for them all 8 times. McCain did not vote period all 8 times. Including the time it missed by one vote. So when McCain says he is for all energy sources he is lying. He is opposed to wind, solar, and geothermal.
