THC sure hopes President Obama resolves the contradictions in our climate policy as part of the ongoing climate summit:
President Obama: We need to stop the Keystone pipeline project of our ally and neighbor Canada
because “America’s now a global leader when it comes to taking action
on climate change. Frankly, approving this project would have undercut
that global leadership. That’s the biggest risk we face. Not acting.
Today we’re continuing to lead by example. ‘Cause ultimately if we’re
gonna prevent large parts of this earth from becoming not only
inhospitable but uninhabitable in our lifetimes, we’re gonna have to
keep some fossil fuels in the ground rather than burn them.”
President Obama: We need to lift the sanctions on the “Death To America” regime in Iran to enable them to pump and sell oil in order to rebuild their infrastructure and economy.
