This all sounds good until you get your utility bill and find out it costs more than your mortgage payment. All the costs for Obama's environmental causes will be added to the homeowners bills. Seniors will have to decide if they're going to freeze in the winter or die from summer heat. More homeowners will be forced out of their homes because they can't afford the utilities. The administration wants to keep us distracted with the so called torture issue so we won't pay attention to the biggest rip-off in the history of the United States.

He's already sending out his brown shirt squad to crush anyone who doesn't toe his line. Haven't you noticed how fast free speech was eliminated when he took the oath of office? This is just the beginning of a Hugo Chavez form of government. The Democrats have it all and there's nothing they won't do to keep it. Be very afraid.

This "Green" movement is a bunch of happy horse spit. The only thing green about these activities is the money that will need to be spent to initiate them.

If you think that going green is the solution to fixing this economy, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I would like to sell you.

Everyone thinks they want to go green, until they have to open up thier wallet to pay for it. So, don't talk to be about saving the environment until you have a baby and agree not to use disposable diapers.

At that point, I will call you a green champion!

Hybrids aren't "green" at least they're no more "green" than normal cars due to the massive amounts of nickle that has to be mined, refined and turned into batteries. They're about us eco- friendly as a hummer H2.

On a day when many Americans will be reflecting upon how they can reduce their impact on the environment, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will board separate jets in Washington on Earth Day morning to fly 250 miles up the east coast to New York, where they will land at separate airports to attend separate events within a few miles of each other.

The parallel visits of Air Force One (a 747/VC-25 aircraft) and Air Force Two (a 757/C-32A aircraft) will delay dozens, if not hundreds of commercial flights at Kennedy and LaGuardia and other nearby airports as no-fly zones are implemented. Jets will be forced to circle and burn more fuel as they wait for the VIPs to come and go. Their security contingents consisting of dozens of cars, SUVs and helicopters will burn even more. Throw in thousands of commutersÂ’ cars and delivery trucks sitting idle in traffic as law enforcement closes large swaths of the city and you have yourself a very Earth-unfriendly day.
