Obama backing off climate change?

24 Aug

Noticed this interesting article on Politico today:

Climate of change on White House site

References to a cap on carbon emissions and a campaign pledge to spend $150 billion on clean energy technologies disappeared from the White House website in June…Deleted items include a section titled “Closing the Carbon Loophole and Cracking Down on Polluters” that offered broad-brush goals for “protecting American consumers” and “promoting U.S. competitiveness.” Also eliminated was President Barack Obama’s oft-repeated campaign call to spend $150 billion over a decade on “energy research and development to transition to a clean energy economy.

Could Obama be backing off of legislative action to combat climate change? The White House denies this, saying they were simply updating information. But polling shows Americans are caring less and less about tackling climate change, especially as the economy seems to get worse. Maybe they will take the hint, finally.

    This is something that people try to explain as global warming. We are starting to think about it more because we see that somethings is changing.
