Stepping back for a moment from the comfort of my cocoon which eschews hackneyed political "greenery," I asked myself:
What objective indicia would gauge the public's position on things green?
The answer should be an unbiased scientific poll. According to new research out of Stanford (link), it's a little known fact that in past elections, candidates who strongly supported green energy initiatives won. If Republicans and Independents can leverage these ideas in 2012, they'll sweep back into power.
