They voted for it, so I hope they really suffer!!! [/quote] But it won't hit the ghettos or they will just hike taxes to help them pay for the higher costs. Those who "work" for the government like IRS agents, tax hikes on them are met with pay increases fought for by their unions so they never really feel what you and I feel... This is going to be worse for those who live in the south and it is designed to harm red states...remember what Jarrett said. They will get "even" with their enemies and their enemies are those of us who did not vote for them. [/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.
