Obama pledges US lead on climate change
AFP on Yahoo ^ | 4/5/09 | Leigh Thomas

Posted on 04/05/2009 5:39:48 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

PRAGUE (AFP) – President Barack Obama said Sunday the United States was ready to take the lead in tackling climate change, as EU leaders pushed him to follow their ambitious targets to combat global warming.

"To protect our planet, now is the time to change the way that we use energy," Obama told a crowd gathered at Prague Castle for his only public speech during his maiden tour of Europe.

"Together we must confront climate change by ending the world's dependency on fossil fuels by tapping the power from the sources of energy like the wind and the sun and calling upon all nations to do their part.

"And I pledge to you that in this global effort the US is now ready to lead."

Obama's promise of a leading US role on climate change broke with his predecessor George W. Bush's stance, which had long frustrated Washington's European Union partners.

He was speaking ahead of his first EU-US summit, with European leaders eager for signs Washington is finally willing to commit to major cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

European leaders were often exasperated by his predecessor's failure to commit the United States to climate change targets, especially because Europe has set itself ambitious goals.

Their frustration has been compounded by the fact that the United States is the world's biggest polluter, leaving the impression in Europe that EU countries are doing all the heavy-lifting in the fight against climate change.

So let me see, he promises to “lead” by following Europe down a path to disaster. All he’s saying is that he will try to get the US to fall in line.

Leadership we better not believe in.

The rest of the world is standing in utter amazement as the elected President of the United States of America pledges to commit to dismantling everything that the country has built and was built upon with the blood of the Patriots that fought for her freedom.

Their collective jaws must be dropping as they see the destruction that they so longed to do being done by the so called Leader of the free world!

I am absolutely sure that they see a vast vacuum of leadership and an opportunity arising out of this.

There is no longer a leader of the free world.

I hope not, Eric. It’s sheer madness.

All of these people pushing this know that humans can’t control the climate and that it’s nothing more than a control and taxing mechanism. But the numbers of those who want that kind of power is very large.

Europe has some of the world’s worst water pollution. Real pollution, not made up CO2 “pollution”.

“The swell in the Rhône at the Grand Large just outside Lyon draws tens of thousands of French tourists on holiday weekends.... But under the crystal clear water lurks an environmental disaster the conservation group WWF is calling “a French Chernobyl”.

The French government has banned the consumption of fish from the length of the Rhône.... France’s second longest river has contaminated sediment in its bed and feeding fish have sent the toxins through the food chain. Environmentalists say the poison Rhône, which flows through tourist spots such as the papal city of Avignon down to the Camargue delta, is the tip of the iceberg of French industrial pollution, which the government has recklessly ignored for 20 years.”

China has a HUGE problem with out-of-control coal mine fires due to their poor safety standards. The amount of CO2 from these accidental coal-mine fires is more than the CO2 put out by all of the autos and trucks combined in the U.S.! (And they are almost impossible to put out.)

“And I pledge to you that in this global effort the US is now ready to lead.”

B.S. The eco-nazis don't really want wind and solar power. They relentlessly oppose any actual construction of said power plants, while using the promise of the same to foil development of coal, oil and nuclear sources. There is a private company now trying to build a solar power farm in the Mojave desert. They are opposed by Diane Feinstein and the usual eco-groups because the Mojave is supposedly a “unique evironment”. Duh! Everyplace is a “unique environment”. If you cannot build solar power farms in the middle of the desert, where exactly are you going to put the 160,000 square miles of solar panels it would take to replace coal plants? On the moon?

I did not know that.

We have pretty much cleaned up our industrial pollution (thanks to Al Gore, according to him, LOL, except on property he owns), and saying that that which we exhale is a pollutant does not make it so. But again, they know that, and the fact that so many would lie on such a grand scale is the truly frightening thing.

Obama has promised to increase electricity rates. The rates will be increased to reduce consumption (forced conservation) and subsidize less efficient forms of energy. If energy prices increase enough to substantially reduce consumption, production will move to countries unaffected by CO2 restrictions. Substantial reductions in CO2 will involve closing many coal fired plants. Without these plants, energy shortages will occur. The only technology that can replace coal plants are nuke plants. Since nuke plants are not in the plan, it looks like a game of chicken to me. Rat politicians that vote to shut down coal plants will be run out of town unless the closure can be kicked down road. Obama has threatened to unleash the EPA unless politicians vote for substantial CO2 reduction goals.

This CO2 reduction nonsense provides a strong opening for conservatives. The midwest will be devasted by the effects of CO2 taxes and coal plant closure.

the fact that the United States is the world's biggest polluter

PROVE IT, you lying sack of macaca! Let's see the figures for ALL forms of "pollution"; not just cherry picked and massaged individual pollutants.

We have scrubbers of one type or another on nearly all of our stacks.

We've had catalytic converters on our vehicles, as well as both older & newer mandated measures, to clean our auto emissions for from years to decades.

We have 1/4 the population of China, but ALL of our even smallest towns have sewerage/waste-water treatment plants, with secondary & tertiary treatment at the larger cities.

Newer, cleaner controls on what is left of mining & smelting.

Our farming pollution control practices are among the best.

On, and on, and on.

Overall, (and I can say it with confidence, having grown up in the 1950s) our country is cleaner aired, and cleaner watered, especially on a percapita basis, than just about any place else that is worth living; and certainly than it was 50 years ago.

Don't get me started on that other outdated...if ever true...canard about only 5% of the world's population hogging 25% of the world's energy.
