He needs to try an save the something of country before he takes on more grander things.. he record ain't been to good so far.. It's nothing but slavery...masked as a 'savior.' And NO i'm not a fan of pollution...not even about that,it's only about money..more money...he said he would shut down the coal mines, increase costs to where it would be so high one could barely pay for it. [/quote] The Gulf of Mexico around Texas is full of PCB's and dioxin because chemical plants and refineries said they couldn't afford the cost to properly store or dispose of the waste. When rules came online governing the storage and disposal of said waste many people said it would cost people their jobs and that it would hurt the US economy. Some parts of the coast are so saturated with PCB's they think it will take hundreds of years for it to be gone. Dioxin is not much better. http://www.epa.gov/wastes/hazard/tsd/pcbs/about.htm http://www.epa.gov/pbt/pubs/dioxins.htm [/quote] That still does not change the fact that it's really only about the money.. Hitler was the first 'Green' Fascist. [/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.
