25. I haven't read the article yet, but I just want to express my appreciation to MessiahRp
for stating his points so well. I agree 100%.

No matter what Al Gore said or didn't say, it's a catastrophically tragic fact that President Obama has chosen to let the issue of climate change flounder and sink from public view. This President, the one who wowed us with his ability to inspire and motivate in speech after speech, has chosen NOT to be a strong advocate for immediate and sustained efforts to make the American public aware of what is at stake and how we need to address the threats posed by global climate change.

The threats posed by Islamic terrorists pale in comparison to the threats posed by our rapidly changing climate systems. Yet it's as if the topic is off limits to this administration.

Someone very high up apparently thinks that this isn't worth the effort and expenditure of political capital. Is it the President? I don't know. But I do know that he IS THE President and should be leading courageously on this. Yet he's not.
