(CNN) - In response to one of the more surreal YouTube videos shown, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, answered a YouTube question from a father and son team of melting snowmen.
"What will you do to ensure that my son will live a full and happy life?" the elder snowman asked.
Kucinich compared the global warming issue to the war in Iraq.
"We have to understand the connection between global warring and global warming. Because when we start talking about wars for oil, we're essentially keeping the same approach to energy," Kucinich replied.
CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Kucinich whether he thinks his fellow and candates are "green enough."
"No," Kucinich responded. "I think that the reason is that if you support, for example, in Iraq, if you say that Iraq should privatize its oil for the U.S. oil companies, then what you're doing is you're continuing a commitment to use more oil."
Kucinich went on to speak about his proposed environmental program.
"We don't have to have our snowmen melting, and the planet shouldn't be melting either," Kucinich said.
