Is it possible to have an election on the Environment?

This is discussion of a topic that is extremely important to me, but only indirectly related to PCT. Two different events may align themselves to cause an election on what is essentially an environmental issue. While most people realize that we are sustained by the environment, and that the economy is there to serve us (and not the other way around). While I understand people being fearful of change, too many political issues have backward priorities and suggest that protecting an outdated economy from change is more important than the fatal environmental changes that are underway if we stay the course.
