WASHINGTON - President Bush is busily pouring over Sen. John Kerry’s voting record. In turn, Senator Kerry is memorizing new allegations in his campaign mantra against the Bush administration...

While much of the rhetoric on both sides already is overheated and misleading, there is no doubt that the views of both men on almost every major issue are different.

Here are their views on Environment and Energy (do we have a winner?):

Mr. Kerry says that the Bush administration has been a disaster for the environment, rolling back many regulations on clean air, clean water, and forest and wilderness protection. Mr. Bush argues that there are too many regulations already and that too many environmental regulations were not well-thought-out and that development is necessary to create more jobs.

Mr. Bush says the country needs a new energy policy that would make the country more independent from foreign oil and that one way to do that is permit drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Mr. Kerry says that most of Mr. Bush’s energy policy would do little but reward energy companies and that "ruining" the wildlife refuge would not be justified by the amount of oil and gas extracted. He wants to give incentives for improved energy technology, saying it would create 500,000 new jobs.
