When will Americans Wake up On Energy and Climate Change?

 

This is the story the public needs to get:  As the Obama administration tries to address Climate Change via our energy policies (probably a good strategy) they are getting serious push back by the party who believes in Climate Change denial and supporting the oil and gas industries which have made more money since the history of money. 

“The president once again asks Congress to do away with billions in tax breaks for fossil fuel interests, over the outcries of the oil and gas industry.”

Oh, please. 

When is America going to wake up and pay attention to this energy Climate Change issue?  At what point will American wake up as the Egyptians have and demand that their oppressors free them from environmental doom? 

The oppressors, the oil and gas industry, with their billions of bucks to hammer the media are driving our environment off a cliff, to a tipping point in Climate Change.  And we sit and watch the same media that lied us into war after war. 

Budget Spars Energy Research, Despite Hits to Other Programs - NYTimes.com WASHINGTON — President Obama’s budget, released Monday, essentially treads water on energy and the environment, trying to maintain momentum for alternative energy research even as it cuts deeply into some environmental protection programs. The president once again asks Congress to do away with billions in tax breaks for fossil fuel interests, over the outcries of the oil and gas industry.  (February 14, 2011)  The New York Times - Breaking News, World News & Multimedia
