Dodd campaign highlights global warming

WASHINGTON, June 1 (UPI) -- The campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., has created a TV spot in Iowa and New Hampshire highlighting environmental politics.

A Dodd spokeswoman said the ad, which discusses Dodd's policies aimed at combating global warming, went up in the two states Thursday with a "moderate-sized" buy, The Hill reported Friday.

The ad says Dodd's energy plan has been given the thumbs up by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and former Sen. Bill Bradley, D-N.J.

The spot also hails the senator's "courageous corporate carbon tax," which has been endorsed by some energy experts.

"All the Earth's creatures are threatened by global warming," the ad's narrator says. "One candidate for president is doing something to stop it."

The Dodd spokeswoman said the ad would run for at least a week.
