Obama climate change initiative, Obama et al play God, Obama placates left for 2014 elections, We need jobs and an honest energy independence strategy
“if they want to build [coal plants], they can, but it will bankrupt them”…Barack Obama
“Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.”…Barack Obama
“For all its soaring rhetoric, President Obama’s “jobs speech” last week didn’t demonstrate a lick of insight into why economies grow or how wealth is created. It was merely trademark Obamanomics: using government diktat to move money that’s over here, over there.
Having spent an hour the day before with Ron Liepert, the energy minister from the Canadian province of Alberta, I found it especially disturbing to hear nothing in the speech about reversing the administration’s anti-fossil-fuels agenda. Canada has recovered all the jobs it lost in the 2009 recession, and Alberta’s oil sands are no small part of that. The province is on track to become the world’s second-largest oil producer, after Saudi Arabia, within 10 years. Meanwhile Mr. Obama clings to his subsidies for solar panels and his religious faith in green jobs.”…Wall Street Journal September 12, 2011
When a person does not follow and obey God, they often take on the role themselves.
If you think about it, you will be reminded of people you know or have read about.
Such is the mentality of Barack Obama and his core supporters, the left.
Imagine, the mentality and spiritual void of changing the climate.
Of course this is another repackaging of “climate cooling” and “global warming.”
A more honest, more team like and more productive approach to our energy use, pollution issues and jobs dilemna is to work together, not use Orwellian, dishonest terminology and science, and take a balanced approach to real issues.
Our biggest problem is jobs followed by a need for energy independence.
We need team players not demigods.
An email sent from the Obama camp.
Today, President Obama announced the biggest steps to fight climate change that any president has ever taken — including the first-ever EPA limits on how much carbon pollution existing U.S. power plants can create.
Change can only happen when ordinary people join in and say we’ll do our part.
President Obama is doing his part — will you do yours?
You don’t have to consider yourself an environmentalist to care about this. If you care about leaving our planet in a better place for our kids and grandkids, then you’ve got skin in the game.
So right now, answer President Obama’s question: Say you’ll do your part to fight climate change:
From: Barack Obama
Subject: Today: What I need from you
I told Congress in February that if they didn’t take action to fight climate change, then I would.
Today, I announced a plan of action to make good on that promise.
My administration is taking steps to cut carbon pollution, prepare our nation for the unavoidable impact of climate change, and put America’s best and brightest to work to solve this issue on a global scale.
One thing we know is we’ll face a well-organized and well-financed opposition by the special interests that profit from keeping things the way they are — and there are members of Congress who fundamentally deny the science on this issue.
But we cannot stand by any longer.
Over the next few months and years, I’m going to need the millions of OFA supporters who understand that we have a responsibility to future generations to fight climate change to join me, and be a force of change in your communities.
We owe it to our children and grandchildren to take action — and now is the time.
Today, I’m here to tell you I am committed to doing my part.
Say you’ll do yours:
