Question by Kestra SpiritNova: Which presidential candidates are most likely to support the research and development of renewable energy?
It doesn’t matter if you list a Republican or Democrat… Just tell me what the candidate’s specific stand is on the development of renewable energy. If you have links to any articles that specifically address this, I’d appreciate that, as well. :)

  1. None. Just follow the money. That isn’t going to happen because they all take money for the energy related companies. It will take a complete depletion of the world oil resource for these political phonies to get it right. It’s only when the money is right that we will see any big changes happen. Not before. Ron Paul is a naive and semi-crazy man.

  2. Obama, Kucinich, and Paul.

  3. Years ago, when the Clinton’s were in the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion, both Bill and Hillary greatly supported the research and use of all forms of renewable energy. They fought hard back then to encourage the use of renewable energy for the reasons we are now facing; it was not that fashionable at the time and federal interest in renewable energy did not allow state governor’s much in the way of support. It is one thing to want alternative forms of energy, but it has to be supported by the federal government, and public and private interests, to be effective. They have a long history of supporting renewable resources. Google: Clinton Renewable Resources and you should find specifics.
