From The Edwards Campaign:
Today at an announcement event in Dover, New Hampshire, Senator John Edwards won the endorsement of Friends of the Earth Action, one of the leading environmental groups in the country.
“John Edwards understands that we must accept responsibility for conserving natural resources and act with urgency to stop the crisis of global warming,” said Brent Blackwelder, president of Friends of the Earth Action. “He has led on this issue, with the best plan to halt global warming and protect the environment. He has the strength and courage to stand up to the big corporations that are abusing our planet. And he is the only top-tier candidate in this race who opposes new nuclear plants in the U.S. For these reasons, we trust John Edwards to work for a healthy environment and fight for the rights of regular people in our country and around the world.”
