[Music] Male Announcer: Our environment in peril,

Oil and food prices out of control,

Climate change wreaks havoc with deadly weather.

One extreme thinks high taxes and crippling regulation is the solution.

Another denies the problem even exists.

There's a better way.

McCain (voiceover): I believe that climate change is real.

It's not just a greenhouse gas issue.

It's a national security issue.

We have an obligation to future generations to take action and fix it.

I'm John McCain and I approve this message.


Notes:  From the press release..."Today in Portland, John McCain will deliver a major speech outlining his plans to combat the threat of global climate change and re-establish America's environmental leadership in the world. He will propose a domestic cap-and-trade system that will mobilize market forces to develop and commercialize alternatives to carbon-based fuels."
