Obama telling it like it is and as we have always said it is:
My presidency will mark a new chapter in America’s leadership on climate change that will strengthen our security and create millions of new jobs in the process. That will start with a federal cap-and-trade system. We’ll establish strong annual targets that set us on a course to reduce emissions to their 1990 levels by 2020, and reduce them an additional 80% by 2050. Further, we’ll invest $15 billion each year to catalyze private-sector efforts to build a clean-energy future.
Few challenges facing America and the world are more urgent than combatting climate change. The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear.
Climate change and our dependence on foreign oil, if left unaddressed, will continue to weaken our economy and threaten our national security.
When a Green Party MP says these things, it’s just the loony left who don’t understand science and should shut up and wait to see what the Aussies and the US are going to do. Meanwhile, the New Zealand government reopens the talking shop to debate whether the sun revolves around the earth.
