Notes:  From the press release
"On the heels of another nationally televised debate that ignored the pressing challenge of global warming, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) is launching a new 30 second television ad to push the issue to the forefront of the presidential primaries and urge the candidates to be America's first 'green' president." 
There were two versions of the ad.  Version 2 included Sen. McCain and Gov. Richardson.
