Idiot Homo said "He's done plenty of things that have been wrong, that have disappointed us. So? Politics is the art of the possible."<quoted text>Same thing with Obama. He's done plenty of things that have been wrong, that have disappointed us. So? Politics is the art of the possible.
Obama is the 1st US President who's even started to take AGW/CC seriously. That alone is a major step forward, but a LOT of work needs to be done.
8 of the 12 largest companies in the world by revenue are oil companies, 2 are auto manufacturers, one is a utility & the other is WalMart. They ALL have powerful economic incentives to deny AGW/CC & delay action on it as long as possible. Carefully written laws might make the auto manufacturers, utility & WalMart more neutral, but those are minor.
The point is that there is an almost unimaginable amount of money & power that wants AGW/CC to be incorrect, & if correct, wants to delay action to mitigate it as long as possible.
During the previous administration the oil industry basically owned virtually all of the US government; now they may only own an enormous percentage of it. It will be a very long & difficult struggle to get the truth out, & then start to do something effective about it.
The odds, money & power are vastly in favor of the irrational, anti-scientific deniers.
But for Bush you did not said that!!!
See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites easy to fool!
