In sweeping proposals released after four years of frustrated efforts, Mr Obama ordered new curbs on carbon emissions from power plants and called for America to ready its defences against an already-changing climate.
The president also surprised environmentalists by signalling he would reject a controversial oil pipeline if it was found to “significantly exacerbate” the problem of carbon pollution.
“I refuse to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that is beyond fixing,” Mr Obama told students at Georgetown University. “As a president, as a father and as an American I’m here to say we need to act.”
Mr Obama first promised a new push on climate change during his inagural address on a freezing morning in January, warning that failing to cut emissions “would betray our children”.
Today, as Washington sweltered in the summer heat, Mr Obama finally laid out the details of his plan, which can be carried out by executive order and therefore do not need Congressional approval.
Obama mocks skeptics of climate change as ‘flat-Earth society’
President Obama angrily blasted climate change skeptics during his energy policy speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, saying he lacked “patience for anyone who denies that this problem is real.”
“We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society,” Obama said. “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”
Earlier in his remarks, Obama said the “overwhelming judgement of science, of chemistry, of physics, and millions of measurements” put “to rest” questions about pollution affecting the environment.
Scientists have falsified data to push carbon taxes three times now and if the facts stood on their own, I would have no issue with what is being pushed. But, the fact that they have lied multiple times, there is something to hide. And if you must lie to push an agenda, then obviously the facts do not stand up to what’s being pushed.
And let’s be honest people, Obama even quotes this in his speech… This is what this is all about…
And who is one of the biggest movers and owners of Green Companies???
Dems: Global Warming Will Force Women into Prostitution
Several House Democrats are calling on Congress to recognize that climate change is hurting women more than men, and could even drive poor women to “transactional sex” for survival.
With a recent survey declaring that 9 percent of Yale students have accepted money for sex, we need to ask the question, “Is it too late to stop global warming from turning women into prostitutes?” If so, simply cutting carbon emissions might not be enough to help these women cope with the horrors of a warming planet.
Obama wants to transform sex traders into carbon traders:
