Obama Gets a Little Help From Sir Paul
Posted on Jun 24, 2010
While it certainly was keen of Sir Paul McCartney to defend President Obama’s handling of the BP oil spill debacle, can someone please call an official moratorium on invoking Holocaust parallels to suit some contemporary sociopolitical crisis? —KA
The shocking images of oil-covered wildlife and ruined beaches across the Gulf of Mexico have horrified millions.
But passionate green campaigner Sir Paul McCartney believes the environmental disaster may have a silver lining, with the search for clean, renewable energy now being pushed forward.
The Beatles legend said: “Sadly we need disasters like this to show people. Some people don’t believe in climate warming—like those who don’t believe there was a Holocaust.
“But the facts indicate that there’s something going on and we’ve got to be aware of it if we want our kids to inherit a decent world, not a complete nightmare of a planet—clean renewable energy is for starters.”
