Do you think that Obama’s environmental policy helped get him elected?

    I think absolutely. Obama’s New Energy push touched a part of the population that was very dedicated to environmental awareness and friendliness, many of which were democrats. The US is lagging in alternative energy, which global warming has made more people realize, and Obama has provided many policies to amend our environmental problems. While we still have a long way to go until we amend global warming completely, Obama provides hope to the community that is frightened for the earth’s future. 

    Recently, Obama’s Recovery Act has helped America push workers to the forefront of the future of electric cars.

    Definitely. Obama’s whole campaign was structured around constructive change not just in policy and governance, but also in how American thinks about the relation between government and the world. By asking American voters to take concern regarding the whole world’s environmental questions, he shifted electoral mindsets from expecting the government to sell things to the people to expecting the people to actively inform government opinion, and by encouraging active thought and debate like this his campain was properly vitalized and shot to meteoric victory.

    This press release about environmental policy opens with the Obama quote “We cannot afford more of the same timid politics when the future of our planet is at stake”. It’s that kind of powerful rhetoric that inspired a nation to think differently about electoral priorities, and a major reason (I think) for Obama’s eventual victory.
