Obama: U.S. 'Determined To Act' On Climate Change

by Scott Neuman

September 22, 2009

President Obama warned the United Nations on Tuesday that there is no time to waste in addressing the problem of climate change, and that a lack of global action now would be judged harshly by history.

The president, addressing a U.N. summit on climate change in New York, said his administration has made the "largest ever" American investment in renewable energy and urged other nations, both rich and poor, to rise to the challenge.

"The journey is hard, and we don't have much time left to make it," Obama said. "Our generation's response to this challenge will be judged by history."

Obama acknowledged that pursuing costly environmental cleanup is difficult at a time when the world is trying to recover from a recession, but he said it has to be done.

1. The US is way behind the EU on climate change.
Even China has higher mpg ratings on vehicles?

We need to get those white boxcars with the shackles welded in them...out of the rail yards and out rounding up wingnuts.... :patriot: ...BEFORE they get too organized....
