Where can I go to find out where a presidential candidate stands on environmental issues?

The League of Conservation Voters’ (LCV) is a great place to start. You can find scorecards for each of the 2008 presidential candidates — based on their environmental voting records.

The LCV doesn’t only cover presidential races. You can find out how your state ranks overall on environmental issues, and look up the environmental rankings (based on voting records) for every senator and house representative in your state, as well. Click here to get started.

For more information and additional resources, read Where do the Presidential Candidates Stand on Environmental Issues?
