McCain TV ads target Energy Policy

John McCain's recent television ad blitz is focused on energy policy and the environment as the three clips below attest.

Part of McCain's energy plan calls for building 45 new nuclear reactors by 2030.

While Barack's plan is open to nuclear energy if the present problems with that technology can be solved, his energy issues page does not include reactors as part of his program.

Plan for a Clean Energy Future

“Well, I don't believe that climate change is just an issue that's convenient to bring up during a campaign. I believe it's one of the greatest moral challenges of our generation. That's why I've fought successfully in the Senate to increase our investment in renewable fuels. That's why I reached across the aisle to come up with a plan to raise our fuel standards… And I didn't just give a speech about it in front of some environmental audience in California. I went to Detroit, I stood in front of a group of automakers, and I told them that when I am president, there will be no more excuses — we will help them retool their factories, but they will have to make cars that use less oil.”

— Barack Obama, Speech in Des Moines, IA, October 14, 2007
