Obama gets it about climate change

global warming

“Not only will I, but I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem.”

— Sen. Barack Obama, quoted by ABC News, when asked if he would appoint Gore to a cabinet position to deal with global climate change.

Clinton and McCain also have said they will, if elected, work on solving climate change. But this statement by Obama is the clearest most unmistakable I’ve seen by any candidate that real action will be taken.

Perhaps a national initiative to create clean, renewable energy will be what pulls the country out of the economic doldrums.

    OBAMA, SEEMS TO BE A GREAT AFRICAN AMERICAN BUT REALITY IS VERY DIFFERENT! MR OBAMA ALMOST A ROCK STAR, ITS THE RESULT OF OPRAH PUBLICITY, ZORROS AND MOVE ON.COM BACKING UP, AND THE LEFT WING OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, INCLUDING THE KENEDY’S, AND TRUST ME, ON THIS ISSUE. GE HAS NOT THE SKILLS, EXPERIENCE OR INTELIGENCE TO TAKE CONTROL OF THIS COMPLICATED COUNTRY! I DO CARE THAT HE IS BLACK, AND NOT FOR RACIST BUT BECAUSE HE WILL PUSH A STRONG POLICY TO TRY TO HELP AFRICAN AMERICANS WICH AT SOME POINT ARE WAY BEHIND TO THE POINT OF BEING HELP!
    IS LIKE HAVING A MEXICAN AMERICAN AS PRESIDENT AND PRETEND HE IS NOT GOING TO OPEN THE GATES FOR IMIGRATION! ITS NAIVE TO THINK!, THAT WASHINGTON CAN OPERATE SMOOTH FROM AN OUTSIDER, BIG CORPORATIONS HAV A SAYNG INTO THE POLITICS, AND COMMING FRESH FROM CHICAGO WONT FLY IN CONGRESS, HILLARY IS WAY MORE EQUIP TO RUN THIS CIRCUS, AND ALSO MOST RESPECTED ARROUND THE GLOBE, ALL WILL HAPPEN IF OBAMA GETS ELECTED IS THAT MCKEIN WILL WIN! AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WILL BLOW FOR A 3TH TIME THE ELECTION, WHERE IS THE COMUN SENSE PEOPLE,TRYNG TO BE NEW ITS NOT NEW ITS STUPID! THIS IS AN OLD GAME TO BE PLAY BY PROFETIONALS NOT THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK!! AND AS MUCH AS WE TRY TO PICTURE A COUNTRY THAT IS COLOR BLIND, WE SEE COLOR AND VERY SHARP, AS MUCH AS WE PRETEND WE DONT, JUST ASK ICE HOW MANY WHITE PEOPLE GOT DEPORTED LAST YEAR BACK TO EUROPE? HILLARY IS THE ONLY REAL SHOT WE HAVE! AND MUCH TO MY SURPRISE SHE IS FADING AWAY!!
