[quote:Anonymous Coward 42328139:MV8yMjc0NDUwXzM4NjgwMTgxX0E3MEVDRUY0] You ppl are 'living in the past'. [b]LENR[/b] [i]My personal opinion is that Obama has been at least briefed on LENR+ (possibly via Navy or Nasa), however, he will not likely be the one to break the news for a few reasons: 1. Career suicide. When LENR hits the mainstream understanding, it will be chaos on the markets with lots of market cap, power and jobs lost in the short-medium term. Why be the one to drop the bomb and cause that chaos and get the blame for the crash. And most (e.g. all Repubs) will say he has lost his mind, cold fusion??? wtf. What does he have to gain really in the short term vs a lot to lose? Just let it play out while laying the groundwork quietly in the background. (e.g push CHP, carbon caps, stall fission, etc) 2. He knows it will take longer to implement globally than most of us want, it always does. There is likely a 10-20 year implementation phase to fully implement LENR+ across the USA/world and we will be dependent on existing sources during that time. (ng, coal especially) 3. The implications of LENR+ are just too unprecedented to fully take in and accept as fact. There have been lots of promised tech and energy breakthroughs, but how many have really been the 100+ year gamechangers. Nearly all things promised dont turn out to be as big as the claims (even though I personally believe LENR+ will be bigger) 4. If he really does know, why tip your hand to all the other nations? Let the Navy, Nasa, etc work in the background to get a sizable lead, especially given the ramifications it has to warfare/weaponry.[/i] [/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.
