Edwards for President Campaign Holds Environmental Policy Forum

July 25th Forum the Third of Five Policy Forums to be Held this Week

(Manchester, NH) – The John Edwards for President campaign hosted a forum on environmental policy today with National Campaign Manager Congressman David Bonior and Senior Domestic Policy Adviser Heather McGhee. It was the third of five forums to be held across New Hampshire this week.

“New Hampshire voters are looking for substance, not sound bites,” said Bonior. “From ending the war in Iraq to providing truly universal health care to combating global warming, Senator Edwards has proposed detailed policies and has led the way on every issue. These forums allow Granite Staters to learn more about his positions, and also to share their concerns and proposals.”

Wednesday afternoon’s forum focused on Senator Edwards’ bold and detailed environmental proposals, which include combating global warming through a carbon emissions cap, creating a ‘New Energy Economy Fund’ financed by polluters, and growing our economy through creating ‘Green Collar’ jobs.

“From Lake Winnipesaukee to the White Mountains, New Hampshire is a state of unparalleled natural beauty,” continued Bonior. “But global warming and pollution threaten us all. Senator Edwards has proposed the most innovative and detailed policies to confront those challenges.”

The series of policy forums will continue through Thursday, July 26th, and will cover Edwards’ policies concerning Iraq, veterans’ issues, the environment, disability issues and health care.

The forums are free and open to the public – details on the two remaining forums are below. For more information or to RSVP go to www.johnedwards.com/nh/events.
