I expect these are more empty promises. Too many voters last go around only voted for Obama because he wasn't Romney. Too many standard stock
democrat voters are starting to wonder when the hell they ever shifted Right. Too many indie media outlets criticizing the dems in office, I think
Obama is just rallying the base for midterms... if something toward actual addressing AGW induced climate change comes out of this, great... but I
won't be holding my breath. I think he's just as sold out to 'dirty energy' and Corporate America as any other.
I came across this article
soon as I finished reading it, I felt the need to share it with ATS, even if most here are part of, about the only thing I agreed with Obama's
speech, the Flat Earth Society. Obama hasn't betrayed you flat earthers, he hasn't betrayed the energy cartels (not even coal), he hasn't betrayed
capitalism, what he has done yet again is betray humanity, our children and grandchildren, he's betrayed science.
"It's amazing how little this all actually does," said Mark Jacobson, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford
University. "In many ways, this makes things worse." Jacobson, who has spent years researching the link between air pollution and human health in
the United States, points out that the White House's seemingly bold objective to curb carbon pollution by 3 billion metric tons by 2030 actually
equates to cutting about one-fortieth of all pollution produced by the US energy sector each year. "The numbers are so trivial, it's almost like a
gimmick," he said. Another part of the White House's plan, to increase the amount of renewable energy projects on federal lands enough to power 6
million homes by 2020, is "embarrassingly trivial," in a country of over 130 million housing units, said Jacobson.
The offer of $8 billion in loan guarantees also strikes Galperin and Jacobson as odd: the new White House plan also aims to cut some US subsidies
for the fossil fuel industry. Citing figures from the International Energy Agency, the White House's climate change plan says that globally, the
fossil fuel industry — which includes coal, oil, and gas production — receives $500 billion in subsidies each year. A "phase-out" of such
subsidies, as the White House proposes, would lead to an estimated "10 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions below business as usual by
The article supports my reasoning that this 'plan' is really nothing more than lip service. So relax flat earthers, global domination won't come
about as a result of trying to tackle climate change, it will come as a result of having done nothing at all or too little too late, after our food
supply is devastated and coastal cities are flooding and it's too hot or too cold, too wet or too dry and we have to figure out places to migrate to
in order to survive. There's your population control and your global dictatorship, your martial law and FEMA camps. Congrats geniuses.
