League of Conservation Voters to back Barack Obama

The League of Conservation Voters will endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president according to a statement released by the group today.

On its environmental issues scorecard, the group gave Obama a score of 67 compared to zero for John McCain.

"When you look specifically at the twin challenges of cutting global warming pollution and moving toward a clean energy future, on those issues Barack Obama has the most comprehensive plan we have ever seen for a presidential nominee," said league president Gene Karpinski.

Two other major environmental groups, Friends of the Earth and the Sierra Club, endorsed Obama earlier this year.
