Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stopped in the Quad Cities today for a volunteer canvass. Around 150 people attended the campaign stop in Davenport--many were there to volunteer for Sanders, a Democrat.

Lisa Lewis Garman from Davenport helped organize canvass routes today, and has been volunteering since September. Once she decided she supported Sanders, her next step was to donate her time to his campaign.

 

While most volunteers are canvassing door-to-door, Air Force Veteran Nick Tsacudakis, from Davenport, says he's been helping out in other ways.

 

Last August, Australia’s new Labor party leader Julia Gillard ran for office promising that she had no intention of pursuing a carbon tax. But that was before she became Prime Minister, and before a multi-party government commission endorsed a carbon tax as part of a long term plan to make markets account for the costs of climate pollution.

Gillard now says that if Australia’s coal-dependent economy doesn’t change, it will be left behind.
