Popular Progressive: Edwards Snags Environmental Group's Endorsement

Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive

John Edwards won the backing of Friends of the Earth Action, the San
Francisco-based political arm of Friends of the Earth. In endorsing
Edwards, the president of Friends of the Earth Action, Brent
Blackwelder, said he was particularly impressed by how early in the
campaign Edwards laid out proposals to reduce carbon emissions by 80
percent by 2050, push for a global climate change treaty and create 1
million new jobs by investing in clean, renewable energy. Edwards has
pushed other candidates to either match or improve upon his ideas,
said Blackwelder, who announced the endorsement with Edwards at a
house party in Dover.
