Terrorism vs Environmental Concerns?

An excellent editorial from one of the smaller American papers, The Des Moines Register, which highlights one of the reasons I don't support Bush.

"The single most important and pervasive moral obligation facing mankind is to ensure survival of a healthy planet for our grandchildren and theirs. We owe an incredible debt to the past, and an equally incredible obligation to the future, for the protection of the awesome gifts nature has bestowed. The political movement, the social order, the religion that won't recognize and act upon that obligation fails the most solemn duty." (More)

I don't think that the Bush administration has done enough on environmental issues, and while terrorism needs to be addressed, it will be pointless winning that war if we don't start doing more globally, and forming the right global partnerships for sustainable development.
