This book surveys the proposals and positions of the Republican and Democratic parties on key environmental issues, including disagreements and areas of common ground, on topics like climate change, emissions trading, endangered species, environmental justice, fuel and energy efficiency standards, genetically modified foods, hazardous waste disposal, fracking, pollution, mining, national parks, nuclear waste disposal, oil and natural gas drilling, pesticides, public lands, solar energy, sustainability, transportation, wetlands, wilderness conservation, and wind energy. It includes differences of opinion within parties, as well as quotes from party leaders, elected officials, and media figures, and public opinion poll results and other information. Each essay begins with a summary of the prevailing positions and policies of the two parties, then presents an overview of the issue and historical trends, events, and attitudes of the parties, including the environmental impact of the issue, attitudes toward key legislation, political alliances, and evolutions in party perceptions, followed by in-depth exploration of the history and attitudes of the two parties on the issue, along with sidebars on major policies, political beliefs, events, and trends related to the topic.
