[quote:Anonymous Coward 788508:MV8yMjc0NDUwXzM4Njc5MzM5X0I2RkQ5MzM4] don't worry.You can change your job from coal to fraking! haha.. Which is of course even worse. Yeah. Isnt it terrible that a transistion could have started a long time ago, a slow transistion that would have had less impact. But the oil,gas and coal companies were always against it. Now it is over. Its too late. The US will start fraking the shit out of the land.using up your precious water. Then of course you'll have to import drinking water.which will cost the public very much. And all because some of you never wanted to make the transistion to cleaner renewable energy. Didnt put money into programs to invent, come up with new ideas, that wouldve have allowed the US to be at the top of the new game. Oh well. Your future is very very dark. [/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.
