Barack Obama says we must slash our emission to save the planet from disaster. But then he shows that cutting those emissions is just for peasants.
“I refuse to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that is beyond fixing,” Mr Obama told students at Georgetown University.
“As a president, as a father and as an American I’m here to say we need to act.”
Mr Obama first promised a new push on climate change during his inaugural address on a freezing morning in January, warning that failing to cut emissions “would betray our children”. Today, as Washington sweltered in the summer heat, Mr Obama finally laid out the details of his plan, which can be carried out by executive order and therefore do not need Congressional approval…
He announced he was imposing the first-ever limits on carbon emissions from power plants… Coupled with new efficiency standards for vehicles, appliances and buildings the limits are intended to help reduce carbon emissions by three billion metric tonnes over 17 years.
The Obamas have arrived back at their $4.3 million new Washington D.C. home after a well-earned break on Virgin billionaire Richard Branson’s private island.
The Obamas arrived at the Tortola airport via a red helicopter….
The former first couple… traveled from a long weekend in Palm Springs to the islands on Branson’s private jet last Monday…
Conclusion: Obama either thinks our emissions aren’t really causing a global warming catastrophe, or he thinks it’s just the little people who should make the sacrifices and go green.
Fraud or hypocrite? You decide.
