We're Fans of Obama's Energy / Environment / Jobs Plan

The US's new President has a lot on his plate. An unsustainable and get cialis cheap unstable energy supply, a crumbling economy with skyrocketing unemployment, and an environmental crisis the likes of which have never been seen.

And, I suppose, he could take on all of these issues one by one...but that just wouldn't be in the spirit of cialis cost 20mg things. Obama seems to have a "one plan to cure them all" kind of attitude and, so far, I'm a fan.

According to his weekly YouTube address, shown above, Obama plans to add three million jobs to viagra from canadian pharmacy the American economy by doubling renewable energy production and vastly improving the efficiency of existing buildings. Jobs, Energy and Environment in one sentence! And if he's including hydro-electric in his renewable energy production numbers, than this is generic viagra without prescription a HUGE commitment. Of course, he doesn't say when it will be done, so we should all reserve judgment until we get a few more specifics.

Of course, this approach is dangerous. By focusing on all three, it's possible that none of them are going to be addressed adequately. Indeed, this plan might be the worst way of all to create jobs and deal with our environmental crisis. But that's not the way it looks to me.

By focusing on efficiency, Obama guarantees energy savings for his buck, and also the creation of infinitely employable jobs retrofitting existing buildings. This creates a very high number of jobs per dollar spent, and they are jobs that can never be outsourced.

Additionally, by setting high but achievable goals for renewable energy production, he creates the cialis canadian foundation of dependablehealthcareservices.com a long-term energy strategy in which we don't just use less, but we replace existing power generation with clean sources. And, theoretically, this plan might breathe a little life into the all-promising growth sector of renewable energy.

Now, I could be wrong about this, I might just be a fanboy with very little economic training (OK, I definitely am.) But I think the time is ripe for a real domestic energy strategy that utilizes the innovation and dedication of the American people.

I can't wait until Obama can take office. Using renewable energy solves three crisises at a time.

I think instead of focusing and jobs and the environment, he should simply focus on viagra cheap making the renewable energy. If we have more plants we have more jobs, right? Plus using the overnight cialis renewable energy would help the environment anyways.

Hopefully it'll all come together like he says it will. We can't be a world power if we have no economic stability.

book on the subject
written by wscott, January 04, 2009
There is a relatively new book out entitled "Hot, Flat, and Crowded" written by Thomas Friedman that covers this subject pretty well from a national standpoint. It recommends taking a lot more urgent action than may be planned by the new adminstration. It's good reading.

The high cost of gas this past year has seriously destroyed every budget from the average family to the largest of municipalities.The average family went broke at the pump alone, then added to the misery the higher cost of manufacturing and buy viagra online australia shipping was passed on to bio viagra herbal us at the checkout for every consumer product. School districts went broke keeping the cialis for cheap busses on the road.One police dept in my area required officers to park their car for 15 minutes of every hour just to conserve .Lower prices are not here to stay.OPEC just announced another production cut.With all these bailouts in the billions why doesn't our nation see the need to bail us out of www.kachinwomen.com our dependence on foreign oil? I just read a really interesting new book called The Manhattan Project of 2009 Energy Independence Now by Jeff Wilson.I never realized it would only cost the equivalent of 60 cents per gallon to charge and drive an electric car. Also,The electricity to charge the car could come from solar or wind generated electricity. If all gasoline cars, trucks, and suv’s instead had plug-in electric drive trains, the amount of electricity needed to buy discount levitra online replace gasoline is about equal to the estimated wind energy potential of the state of North Dakota.What powerful resources we have been neglected. The last economic stimulus package cost 168 BILLION and did absolutely nothing to stimulate our economy or create jobs.
Bail America out of its dependence on foreign oil. Wouldn't that make more sense?

Engineers
written by Niels, January 05, 2009
I'm wondering where Obama wants to get all the technicians and engineers from.. The car industry? I doubt it. And other industries are still doing pretty well, so people there aren't eager to switch jobs. It doesn't just take money to create jobs, it also takes education (you want your houses to be retrofitted properly, right?) and thus time.

Sorry for being a bit sceptical. I love Obama for his ambitions, and I'm curious about the order discount cialis online outcome of his plans.

What?
written by Greg, January 05, 2009
What exactly did he say other than fear mongering? There is more red tape in government than there is in medicine, fix that. Bring our government up to buy online prescription levitra date. Then reduce that. Kick all the moochers off public assistance and tell them to get a job and leave that money for those who really need it, then you can quit taking so many taxes out of my lower middle class income.

Why have weekly addresses if you aren't saying anything of http://www.velikibrat.us/viagra-professional substance. All I heard was propaganda and fear mongering. Sorry.

Friedman's book
written by bobbobberson, January 05, 2009
In general I enjoy most of friedman's columns and works, (I may not agree with him) but the fact that he came out with a book in 2008 about global warming is a bit late to the game. This website has been discussing that here for years.

Obama should concentrate on one thing at a time, and the first thing is energy efficiency in gov't buildings. Many of them are very old and click here viagra online shop uk inefficient. This will have the it's great! levitra from canada most immediate financial impact (jobs immediately and less gov't energy usage).

Not What! are you talking about
written by Greg, January 05, 2009
Obama is a Democrat. Democrats support strong social assistance programs. What do Republicans have to do with Obama's fear mongering and high taxes? My taxes went down under the current Republican and I fear that they will go up under the next president. I hope for the best, but remain cautious and hope the rest of the country does also.

Yeah. I'll believe when it happens, not before. Especially with all the extra taxes and regulations he's said he wants add onto businesses that will drive the cost of doing business up.

Fear-mongering? Is that guy listening to the same video I was? Does he honestly not think the economy is an issue right now? That address was far from fear-mongering and actually was very hopeful about a solution!

Anyways, I can't wait for Bush to be gone and pfizer viagra 50mg Obama to be official!

I am not a "small-government" advocate, but I completely agree that the vast federal government agency map needs to pfizer viagra canada be consolidated and streamlined. We should be able to modernize all the agencies using new I.T. to organize it better and cut out the redundancies. All of the domestic aide programs, like welfare/general assistance, subsidized housing, healthcare assistance, etc should be brought under one roof, and modernized so we can track the progress of individuals receiving help and get rid of www.americanfoods.com the waste and abuse. That would not only reduce costs, but end up helping a lot more families who really need help.

Overall, I think Obama is on the right track. His economic recovery plan is pretty balanced, with a good combination of biz tax credits for creating jobs, citizen tax credits for the middle class, and a ~$350 billion outlay for improving schools, starting green energy projects, fixing transportation infrastructure, among other things.
