[/quote] I feel sorry for people like you because you do not know what you are signing up for... It's the death sentence for the majority of us. [/quote] he's just talking about cutting down on pollution. you guys hate him so much you even say that THAT is bad. yes, he is a terrible president, but this just doesn't seem pin-worthy. next you will be criticizing how he farts. give it a rest or DO something about it. whining gets you nowhere [/quote] He's talking about wiping out the coal plants that (at least until recently) provided over 50% of our electricity in this country. I guess he'll ramp up nukes instead. So we sell that coal to China, which burns it largely on its east coast, and the flyash wafts across the Pacific and makes acid rain right here in the USA! Obama doesn't want to restrict our coal sales to China at all. F'ing hypocrite. He just wants to damage USA and is doing everything possible to make it happen. [/quote] yeah if you choose the MOST negative possibilities, everything sounds bad. [/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.
