Sierra Club Endorses Obama

In another sign that the progressive movement is rallying around the Democratic nominee, the Sierra Club announced that it will endorse Senator Obama for president today:

The Sierra Club said Thursday it will endorse Democrat Barack Obama for president, a decision it said was made easier by Republican John McCain's support this week of repealing a moratorium on offshore drilling and expanding nuclear power.

"The contrast, which was already pretty sharp, just got razor sharp this week," the environmental group's executive director, Carl Pope, told The Associated Press. "At the end of the day, John McCain just signed up with the Bush policy of giving the oil industry what it wants."

Yesterday, atdnext analyzed John McCain's record on the environment and found that the myth did match the reality. Today, the Sierra Club will come out and confirm what atdnext argued so forcefully, that John McCain's commitment to the environment changes with the political landscape.
