Please do Mr. President, please do:
President Obama is vowing to make the case for action on global warming during the 2012 campaign.
“I suspect that over the next six months, this is going to be a debate that will become part of the campaign, and I will be very clear in voicing my belief that we're going to have to take further steps to deal with climate change in a serious way,” Obama told Rolling Stone magazine in a newly published interview.
Obama’s comments follow a first term that saw global warming legislation collapse in Congress but several administrative steps to address climate proceed, such as tougher auto mileage rules and first-time greenhouse gas standards for new power plants.
Got that? Because of Obama's lame policies, people are more focused on helping their families survive than focus on a theory that has been thoroughly disputed over the last few years. But you see, it's not a flawed theory, it's those evil corporations who "poured millions of dollars" into a campaign to enlighten folks about
“Part of the challenge over these past three years has been that people's No. 1 priority is finding a job and paying the mortgage and dealing with high gas prices. In that environment, it's been easy for the other side to pour millions of dollars into a campaign to debunk climate-change science,” Obama said.
No, it couldn't have been the released emails that showed the leading advocates of climate change legislation urging other scientists to "hide the decline" or the complete obliteration of the work performed by CRU. Oh no, it was those evil one per centers who were trying to fool you. Not only do those rich bastards hate the environment but they hate, you, gays, minorities and puppies (although they've never had them with barbecue sauce like the Commander in Chief has) but they want the oceans to rise and temperatures to soar (albeit it's only one half of one degree centigrade).
I really hope Obama makes this a central issue of his campaign, but really, what else can he talk about that was successful?
Exit question: What issues are really important to Americans? Hmm, climate change doesn't seem to be fairing very well.
