President Obama Calls for Reduction of Carbon Pollution, Outlines Climate Action Plan

President Obama has laid out a new national climate action plan in a speech given at Georgetown University. “I refuse to condemn your generation and indian cialis generic future generations to a planet that’s beyond fixing,” the president said. The three-part plan involves cutting carbon pollution, helping states and cities prepare to weather the http://www.roli-guggers.de/usa-generic-cialis impact of climate change, and--in distinctly American language--“lead[ing] the world in a coordinated assault on a changing climate.”

In addition to cialis professional 100 mg calling for continuing increased reliance on generic viagra india clean energy, increasing funding for renewable energy development, and reducing energy waste, President Obama spoke in favor of natural levitra federal limits to the amount of carbon pollution that power plants can release into the air, one of the major sources of carbon pollution in America. “We limit the amount of toxic chemicals like mercury and sulfur and arsenic in our air or our water, but power plants can still dump unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into the air for free,” said President Obama. “ That’s not right, that’s not safe, and it needs to stop.” As part of this new carbon pollution initiative, the Environmental Protection Agency would set new pollution standards for current and future power plants.

President Obama commended states’ efforts in reducing carbon pollution. “More than 25 have set energy efficiency targets. More than 35 have set renewable energy targets,” said the president, stating further that it was “time for Washington to catch up with the rest of the country.” The president’s plan, however, did include continued production of the best place levitra online store fossil fuels. “Transitioning to a clean energy economy takes time,” President Obama said. The Keystone pipeline also gained mention, and the president said that the http://saltlakewebcentral.com/levitra-100 State Department is in the final stages of evaluating the proposal. “The net effects of the pipeline’s impact on our climate will be absolutely critical to determining whether this project is allowed to go forward,” President Obama said. To applause, the president called for public financing to cheap online levitra stop for new coal plants overseas, "unless they deploy carbon-capture technologies, or there's no other viable way for the poorest countries to generate electricity."

House Speaker John A. Boehner condemned the president’s proposals, stating “These policies, rejected even by the last Democratic-controlled Congress, will shutter power plants, destroy good-paying American jobs and raise electricity bills for families that can scarcely afford it.” In response to claims like this, the president pointed out that economic growth and limiting pollution are not mutually exclusive. He discussed the history of environmentally-concerned legislation, like the only today levitra femele Clean Air Act, fuel standards for automobile makers, and CFC regulation, which did not destroyed the economy: “When we phased out CFCs, the gases that were depleting the ozone layer, it didn’t kill off refrigerators or air-conditioners or deodorant. American workers and look here canadian levitra 50mg businesses figured out how to do it better without harming the environment as much.” President Obama also mentioned that GM, Nike, and over 500 other businesses recently issued a Climate Declaration that calls for the federal government to take action on climate change, and that if addressing climate change was bad for businesses, shareholders, and customers, these companies wouldn’t rally behind a call for action.

While some critical details were absent, like just how much carbon pollution is acceptable from power plants, overseas coal plants, and the proposed Keystone pipeline for it to move forward, President Obama did not sugar coat the reality of the problems at hand. "Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm. And ultimately, we will be judged as a people, and as a society, and as a country on where we go from here." The president urged his audience to http://visionwidget.com/effect-of-cialis-on-women "speak up for the facts" and take action: "Convince those in power to reduce our carbon pollution. Push your own communities to adopt smarter practices." A pdf of the climate action plan may be access here. The White House also released an infographic on climate change and the president’s plan to address it here.

Dear Mr. President,

I would like to give my personal thanks for your stand on protecting us and the American nation from the clear and present dangers of man made climate change.

After decades of http://robovero.com/purchase-viagra-in-canada collecting evidence, the imperative has become manifest: the time for change is now.

I feel proud that there are still serious-minded, patriotic Americans who put country before politics and make a stand for genuine change.

I feel confident that when my children try to explain science and nature to canadian healthcare viagra their kids, they will at least be able to say, "Yes, there were some who stood up for what is right." I only hope they will be able to do so in a healthy, stable world, not one beset by the storms of a turbulent, disrupted Mother Nature.

It is now too late to avoid the repercussions of climate change altogether. But with your brave efforts, and with the support of educated Americans, we can at least steer the is a generic pill for levitra country "back onto the road" before environmental peril leads to lasting economic stagnation.

Already, as I have read, before your proposal was announced, Speaker of the House John Boehner called it a "joke." But the joke is www.breinweb.nl on all of us if a narrow moneyed class with narrow interests sells the country for a short term profit, and leave us all with the cleanup bill.

This is an economic issue, because these problems cannot be separated. People must see that we can act now for the future, or prepare for permanent disaster relief and all the economic repercussions they entail.

Please accept my best wishes to you in your efforts in the challenging months ahead.

Yours sincerely,

John Barefield

Please, everyone who is concerned about our future and http://www.spotfodo.com/levitra-online-usa the welfare of our country, our long-term economy, and our world, I beg you: pass this one along vie email, Facebook, Twitter and other media.

Until China and India curtail their prolific creation of coal-fired power plants, the President can close all US coal-fired power plants and the result to global climate change would zip, zilch, nada.

I have been using a combination of grid and solar electricity for 30 years. I owned drove a electric car daily over 20 years ago. Government has no business interfering with commerce. Free enterprise any one? Coal plants work and are cost effective. People pollute . You are not going to save the little blue and http://revistaneon.net/canada-viagra-generic green planet if you keep reproducing without regard for the environment. If I wanted to live in a commune ( agenda 21) I would have done so in the nineteen sixties. A carbon tax will make a few people rich. You are being used. You will love the new world order. Nothing new here.

It's great that we are taking action to reduce climate change, but I totally agree with John Brofka, until other developing countries adopt the same standards it will continue to be a problem.

Humans are going to become extinct like all life does on panaceahealthsolutions.com this planet. Something more adapted will come along to exploit the canadian drug store cialis niche.

Global warming just means that we are giving mother Earth a chance to renew itself.

Humans have contributed to the Earth's decay. But the Earth is going through a natural change as well. She's tilting and there's nothing that can be done to cialis professional 100 mg stop it. As for lessening the carbon footprint, there are ways to create clean reusable energy. But no one wants to solve the problem cause they will have nothing to talk about and spend money on.
