[quote:CriticalThinking:MV8yMjc0NDUwXzM4Njc5MDAyXzg0NEE3MkE=] Guys, come on. R and D really doesn't matter. We all know that. As for emissions.... I live in an area surrounded by plants. These plants in the past 8-10 years have been bending over backwards to fit new upgrades for emissions standards into their budgets and properties(upgrades require land). Sad thing is, these plants do NOT put off as much as "they" would like to scare people into thinking. What about these wildfires we get yearly now? The atmospheric heating from them can be felt multiple states down wind. The smoke from them creates a blanket that covers multiple states downwind. Yet still, lets pass legislation (passed by both R and D) that hinders power plants capability to run at all. Let's cut jobs for more than JUST these plant workers to help "reduce emissions". PSH! How about we pass legislation that CREATES jobs? Screw the enviro-nuts, they can't have it both ways. "Oh save the forest", "Cut emissions!". Yet because of them, proposed plans to deforest were squashed. Now we have fires that once sparked burn out of control causing MUCH more damage to homes and cabins (which release toxic fumes from the building materials.). How to prevent this? Hmmmmm.... Oh yeah! CREATE jobs, deforest the dead trees! And instead of worrying about the emissions from plants (which has ALREADY been reduced) we can worry about Radiation from Fukishima or the LA sinkhole or some other REAL environmental problem. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for "helping" as much as I can to better the planet we live on. But we as a people focus FAR to much attention on the wrong issues. :rant: [/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.
