President Obama, as his Inauguration Address confirms, is in denial about both the climate and energy realities. Repeating the most alarmist rhetoric of ideologue-turned-salesman to oil interests Al Gore, Obama appeared ignorant of the fact that data shows global warming isn’t happening. The president has re-stated his desire for yet more backing to a green energy industry that is collapsing being wholly reliant on the lifeline of public subsidy. And that can only mean dumping further on the oil, gas and coal industries that made the US the powerhouse it still is.
TAGGED: global warming, fossil fuels, renewables, clean energy, President Obama
