Iowa Progress: Edwards Follows Vilsack's Lead on Carbon Neutrality
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress
Today John Edwards announced that his presidential campaign will aim to be carbon neutral. As the email the campaign sent out explains, "In February, Governor Tom Vilsack announced he would be the first presidential candidate to plan a carbon neutral campaign. Edwards shares his commitment to protecting our environment and reducing our carbon footprint." Edwards is angling to fill the "Vilsack Vacuum," only weeks after Vilsack announced he would drop out of the campaign. He is trying to recruit as many former Vilsack supporters as possible at this point, and this was one of the Vilsack campaign's more novel ideas — although the Vilsack folks seemed to want to use it more for fund raising than anything else.
