MASSPIRG

MASSPIRG, an enviromental lobbying group released a statement in support of Governor Romney's latest enviromental efforts:

We appreciate his careful consideration and treatment of this issue. We hope the legislature will accept his amendments. They are an effective compromise that will continue the Commonwealth’s commitment to supporting the development of new, clean renewable energy—exactly what we need to solve our energy crisis.


And then were Romney really gets the glowing compliment:

This makes the right call by committing to put efficiency first, and that’s a very positive step. It is clear that a lot of thought has gone into this plan, and, for the sake of comparison, this plan is light-years better than what Congress and the Bush administration have put together in recent years.


These people are not 100% sold on Romney though. This statement from the end of the release should be pointed out:

...no energy plan for Massachusetts is complete without support for Cape Wind and joining RGGI, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. We continue to be disappointed by Gov. Romney’s rejection of those two promising opportunities.


All in all, Romney's record on the enviroment will be a powerful tool in the general election, possibly turning what is a Democratic issue into a common issue for both parties. If you really care about the enviroment than I would suppose that would be a victory.

I wish Romney would support the wind turbines too, but I think this might be the only thing I disagree with him about, and I could be persuaded... I don't know much about it...
