Greenpeace rating of our candidates' environmental platforms


...
Turns out, Castro might want to pick a different issue if he wants to stand out from the rest of the 2020 climate hawks. He scored a “D+,” while Inslee, who has a long history of championing environmental legislation, nabbed the highest score with an “A-.” Senators Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders ranked close behind Inslee with a “B+” each. According to Greenpeace, Castro neglected to set a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions target, concoct a plan to manage the phase-out of fossil fuels, or enact policies to fight environmental racism.

As a result, Castro garnered a measly 25 points out of the available 100. He’s still ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, and Ohio Representative Tim Ryan, though. Those three got a “D-” apiece.


...
In order to determine how to score each candidate, Greenpeace sent around a 29-question survey that centered on two major themes, each worth 50 points: Will the candidate end the era of fossil fuels, and will they champion a Green New Deal?

It wasn’t a simple yes or no test; the survey asked for concrete targets for phasing out greenhouse gases, left blank spaces for candidates to write in specific policies, and even asked how candidates would go about setting up their cabinets. Greenpeace also examined each contenders climate and environment record — what policies they supported while in office, whether they took the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge, and the planks of their climate platforms (if applicable). The group says it intends to update the scorecard as candidates adjust or add new elements to their platforms.

Looks like Obama's score is so bad because he missed a bunch of Senate votes the campaign year 2008. Before then, he voted for all the environmental bills in the Senate, except one.

Looks like Biden missed some votes, too. He generally voted for environmental bills.

22. Biden's LCV scorecard is definitely abysmal when compared to any other 2020 Democratic candidate

 

Even when compared to almost every other Democrat who was scored by the LCV, Biden's LCV scorecard is abysmal, so your singling out an exception like Joe Machin holds no water. Plus, a Manchin comparison is ridiculous when last anyone knew, Manchin is running for President in 2020.

BTW, since you brought up Obama in negative environmental fashion, his environmental legacy as President was outstanding, so putting him in the same category as Joe Manchin, environmentally, is ridiculous, but nice try at trying to get Biden off the hook by running down Obama when Obama's environmental accomplishments are head and shoulders above anything Biden ever accomplished.

25. No it's not.

 

The difference between Biden's 82% and Bernie Sanders' 92% score could literally be the difference of just a few votes.

What a silly comparison.

Moreover, you're comparing a record of a man who's been out of office now for over a decade with current members of congress. It's just not a good comparison.

Beyond that, I pointed to Obama to showcase how disingenuous your post really was - but thanks for reinforcing my point that the score doesn't mean much in terms of how they'll spend the next eight years advocating for the environment as president. Glad you see that, too.

to change the fact that Biden's 83% LCV environmental score is at the very bottom of LCV scores of any other 2020 Democratic candidate.

There is also nothing more disingenuous than bringing up someone like Manchin or Obama to compare it to when neither of them are one of the 2020 candidates. Talk about silly comparisons....

Just because it undercuts your point that Biden must be awful because his lifetime score is a strong 83%, which is better than Obama's, who you openly admit was a great president on environmental issues, doesn't make it silly. Nice try, tho.

33. I mean, it's a valid comparison, no?

 

Context matters.

Here's Kerry's:

http://scorecard.lcv.org/moc/john-kerry

Not far off from Biden's.

Here's Ted Kennedy's:

http://scorecard.lcv.org/moc/edward-m-kennedy

Technically worse than Biden's.

These politicians would be more comparable to Biden since they were in the senate during his time in the senate - which means they voted on the same bills and had a same universal make up.

The only comparable candidate currently in that regard is Bernie Sanders and, well, he's not in the mid-to-high 90s - he's in the low 90s.

37. I'm fine with saying it's valid.

 

Having said that, in terms of Democratic standards when it comes to LCV scores, there is a world of difference between Biden's 83% score and Kerry's 91% score. Biden's and Ted Kennedy's LCV scores are at low end of the spectrum. 83% is nothing to brag about if you're a Democrat, considering that the average score for Democrats just for 2018 alone was 95%.

Anyway, yes, your comparison is valid.

10. Seems reliable to me. Better than League of Conservation Voters.

 

The LCV is based on Congressional Record. Can't compare the candidates because some of them have no Congressional Record, and Biden's is so long, compared to others.

Greenpeace, OTOH, is going by their current stances, all being judged on the same categories.

But I think it's safe to say that they are all generally pro-environment. It is alarming that Biden scored so low, though. It could be his campaign isn't focusing on that yet, so hasn't firmed up his stances.

It also rates according to support for the Green New Deal, which I, a very strong pro-environmentalist, think is extreme and unrealistic. Or at least what I know about it.

14. I'm not trying to call you out, but I must disagree.

 

As advanced by AOC, the Green New Deal was a non binding resolution. The world is close, too close, to going down an irreversible path toward uninhabitability, and yet our people in the Senate were afraid to vote yes, because McConnell was there saying that a yes vote is a vote against American jobs, AND THEY LET HIM COW THEM. They all voted present and honestly that still very much sticks in my craw.

Yeah, I know about the politics, but we have to get control of the talking points. Because you know what? McConnell made a minor change to his disgusting, shitty, don't-care-about-anything-but-money and profits, treasonous utterances. He now says, "A 'present' vote is a vote against American jobs."

That is despicable.

And the reason, in my opinion, that this is 'unrealistic' is simply because the greed heads have been successful throwing money into pseudo-scientific studies designed to cast just a bit of doubt to buy big oil time for a few more years of high shareholder profits. It's ALWAYS about fucking money, but I've got grandchildren. They need the Green New Deal NOW, or at least some plan that aggressively (not 'politic' but AGGRESSIVE) works to mitigate our march toward fucking extinction.

Sorry for the F-bomb, and it's not you that upset me. It's this whole 'unrealistic' thing. We're 11 years at this point from going down an irreversible path to this planet becoming a smoking cinder. See, one of the things that I just love about AOC is that she made a video for what is considered on here to be a subversive organization in terms of the Democratic party, and on this video she said, "If you only get to serve one term, so what!" Basically saying that if you are elected, you are obligated to do the right thing even if it means you become unpopular and (gasp!) lose the next election.

That is what it means to put the welfare of the American people over party. Not that our people aren't doing that, but sometimes it seems very frustrating to me - a Catch-22 - where if we do the RIGHT thing, then the Republicans win because they are SO VERY MUCH more disciplined than we are around talking points. And if we equivocate out of a desire that this not happen, we STILL play into the hands of their corporate masters, who are playing a delaying game even now. Just another year of high profits surely won't hurt. Two years. Three years. Ten years...

Almost enough to make you want to weep, but we cannot give up. It is darkest before the dawn and we can win for the sake of our children and grandchildren, for the sake of all the species of the earth.

Grist credits the chart to Greenpeace, and the information on the Greenpeace site seems to jibe with what's in the chart.

You seemed to suggest this was something the Sanders campaign produced to mislead. From the evidence I can readily obtain, the attribution to Greenpeace seems wholly accurate.

Or by "discredited" do you simply mean Greenpeace's methodology for rating the candidates is suspect?

17. Here's Greenpeace's methodology page BTW

 

Follow the link in the excerpt:

We scored candidates based on their responses to a Greenpeace USA survey and their public records, then assigned each a letter grade. Scores will be updated as candidates’ positions change. Among Democrats, we only included Democratic candidates who have crossed the DNC debate threshold. Check out our detailed methodology here.

What matters most is how each candidate would:

Say #NoToFossilFuels by halting oil, gas, and coal expansion, phase out existing fossil fuel infrastructure, and center fossil fuel workers and climate-impacted communities in the transition to a renewable energy economy.

Champion a Green New Deal by mobilizing our economy toward 100% renewable energy for all, creating millions of family-sustaining jobs, and securing a better future for communities that have borne the brunt of fossil fuel industry exploitation.
