Now, just like the local basement waterproofing salesman, the folks at Davos will know just what we need to do with our money to avoid disaster. READ MORE…
Meanwhile on the GREEN homefront...
You would think that the Secretary of State’s job would be protecting America’s interests first, but by picking John Kerry, a staunch believer in climate change, Barack Obama has made it clear that he is an internationalist first and an American somewhere way down the ladder.
There is a statutory process with respect to the review that falls to the State Department and elsewhere and that is currently ongoing. I’ve already checked into it. It’s under way. It will not be long before it comes across my desk and at that time, I’ll make the appropriate judgments about it.Translation: we’ll see if Obama can sell the public on putting the kibosh on it, if he can’t I’ll stamp it approved.
Yet Kerry couldn’t help himself when GOP lawmakers asked him about climate change, blurting out:
The solution to climate change is energy policy. And the opportunities of energy policy so vastly outweigh the downsides that you’re expressing concerns about. And I will spend a lot of time trying to persuade my colleagues about this. You want to do business and do it well in America, we gotta get into the energy race. … I’ll be a passionate advocate, but not based on ideology, based on fact, based on science. This $6 trillion market is worth millions of American jobs and we better go get it.First of all, the way leftists see climate change is fiction. Second, how much money has Barack Obama wasted on “green” companies?
So far, the international engagement on climate has been driven very strongly from the White House. But that has not been matched as strongly so far through a direct engagement of the secretary of state. Obviously climate is an environmental issue, but it’s also very much an economic and diplomatic issue, and I feel it’s really important that there is strong engagement from the State Department and the secretary of state, given the fact that the challenge we face is as much a diplomatic one as it is an economic and environmental one.So the U.N. approves of Kerry. Need we say anything more?...Breitbart
BBC News...A year ago, President Obama kicked the Keystone Pipeline issue into the long grass. Writing at the time, my former colleague Richard Black analysed the background to the decision.
But the long grass has now wilted and the President will shortly have to give a final yea or nay.
In a recent letter to the President, 18 well known climate scientists urged him to reject the pipeline on the grounds that it increases US reliance on fossil fuels.
