[quote:Anonymous Coward 30438768:MV8yMjc0NDUwXzM4Njc3NzI2X0Q4OEY2MDA3] Georgetown Climate Center Shows Strong Support from Republicans and Democrats for EPA Action 87 Percent of Americans – Including 78 Percent of Republicans -- Support Action Only 13 percent of Americans want Congress to prevent the EPA from enforcing regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Only 22 percent of Republicans and 6 percent of Democrats want Congress to intervene. “Polling that we are releasing today shows that Americans want the Administration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and to take steps to protect future generations from the worst climate change impacts.” The polling also shows that three in four Americans now say that there is solid evidence that the [b]average temperature has been getting warmer[/b] in recent decades, including 61 percent of Republicans. http://www.georgetownclimate.org/polling-released-today-by-the-georgetown-climate-center-shows-strong-support-from-republicans-and-de "Warmer temperature" is an absolute nonsense! This might be part of Georgetown's new lows in education. Do they hire janitors to teach physics and write articles at Georgetown Climate Center? [/quote]
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.
