Do “blue” states tend to have better energy policies than “red” states?

    Not necessarily.  It really depends on the people in the state’s legislature.  While blue and red states may disagree about global warming, energy resources may be less disputed along party lines.

    Firstly, I think that the polarizing lines drawn in the 2000 and 2004 elections are becoming more blurred.  Blue and red states no longer have such disctinct beliefs and laws. Gay marriage is an example, as states like Iowa that were considered red have allowed this, while blue states such as California and New York have banned it.

    I would say that so called blue states overall have a better record on environmentally friendly energy policy, but again, in 2010 it depends more on the activism of the people and the elected officials and less on red and blue.
