Obama Offers Change on Climate Change

Posted on Nov 18, 2008

Cyber-Bama: Barack Obama made a virtual appearance at the U.S. Climate Action Partnership meeting in Los Angeles.

How will an Obama administration differ from its predecessor in terms of climate change? President-elect Barack Obama made a virtual appearance at a Los Angeles climate conference to drop some hints.

AP via Google News:

In his remarks to the summit, Obama criticized Washington for failing to lead on the issue in the past.

Said Obama: “I promise you this: When I am president, any governor who’s willing to promote clean energy will have a partner in the White House. Any company that’s willing to invest in clean energy will have an ally in Washington. And any nation that’s willing to join the cause of combating climate change will have an ally in the United States of America.”

Scientists, environmentalists and government and industry officials were attending the two-day Governors’ Global Climate Summit in Los Angeles, held ahead of a U.N. gathering in Poland next month.

Cap and Trade is code for unregulated financial free for all. It’s just another hustle for traders to generate income without producing anything of value. Maybe this is what’s behind the whole Obama-Clinton Whitehouse debacle?? DON’T DRINK THE KOOL-AID OBAMA !!!!

I, myself, had to deal with climate change. For a while I could wear long sleeve shirts with a light jacket, but now I have to wear a heavy coat. What can Obama do about fall turning to winter? Whatever happened to the word “global warming”? I get the feeling all this worry over carbon dioxide is just a bunch of brown bull squirt. Maybe Obama could write an executive order to El Sol to increase or decrease sun spot activity. Perhaps we should have cap and trade for Europaeans on Europa, which orbits Jupiter. If you let this “change” go through you’ll be paying some international agency for the privilege of farting. It is fine to be liberal, broad minded, and humanitarian, but don’t be a disgusting, craven, and credulous moron. In other words don’t be a dumb ass.
