WHEN it comes to dealing with the worlds climate and energy challenges I have a simple rule: change America, change the world.
If America raises its clean energy standards, not only will others follow others who have hid behind our inaction well also stimulate our industry to invent more of the clean air, clean power and energy efficiency systems, and move them down the cost curve faster, so U.S. companies will be leaders in this next great global industry and American consumers will be the first to benefit. That is why the new Environmental Protection Agency rules President Obama proposed last week to curb carbon emissions from power plants are so pivotal. You cant make power systems greener without making them smarter smarter materials, software or design. One new ruling will not change the world and we have to be careful that this one doesnt replace our addiction to coal with an addiction to natural gas alone. But coming at a time when clean energy technologies are becoming more competitive, and when awareness of climate change is becoming more pervasive, this E.P.A. ruling should give a real boost to clean power and efficiency innovation and make our country more resilient, healthy, secure and respected.

This is satire, right?
Why don’t you lead by example, Tommy boy? You can start by moving out of your mansion, which is obviously an energy hog.
“... others who have hid behind our inaction ...”
Right. The NYTimes op-ed page is the Funnies page.
I think Thomas Friedman just went full retard...
Of course China, India, Russia will follow in our footsteps...
What a simpleton.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
If there is one thing the world needs, it's more of the unreliable, more expensive energy that liberals want.
If Obama was really concerned with the planets future, he would have thousands of assets over in Fukushima trying to stop the flood of radioactive particles entering the biosphere. The Japanese are currently trying to install a giant underground frozen wall that is the largest of its kind in world history. Maybe, just maybe, they could use some help. It appears that one of Obama's green power sources is completely out of control and could potentially ruin significant sections of Japan.
Where do you get the idea that Obama is in favor of nuclear energy?
Europe was supposed to be leading the world in renewables and is now reeling from the negative effects of it.
The US is now following them on a path that is a proven failure
He said it himself. It is one of the pillars of his green energy program. Nuclear energy does not increase global warming green house gas emissions, according to the idiots who do not know what water vapor actually is. All part of the greatest con in world history.
Yeah, he lies.....a lot.
It is one of the pillars of his green energy program.
How much nuclear capacity has been added to the grid since he took office?
Nuclear energy does not increase global warming green house gas emissions
It doesn't release CO2.
according to the idiots who do not know what water vapor actually is.
Are you worried that water vapor from nuke plants is going to warm the planet?
What an IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obama thinking like a Lemming ?
“coming at a time when clean energy technologies are becoming more competitive, and when awareness of climate change is becoming more pervasive, this E.P.A. ruling should give a real boost to clean power and efficiency innovation and make our country more resilient, healthy, secure and respected” Who says? Show me where any of this is true. You can’t even get your “facts” straight,let alone change the weather.
