  •  And I don't care. I was addressing Climate Denier (4+ / 0-)

    One thing is not like all the others you brought up.  Not defending anything, just saying that it's pure hyperbole.  No question.

    Someone once asked me why do you always insist on taking the hard road? and I replied why do you assume I see two roads?

      Tell me what you do and ill tell you what you believe.  If the President talks about climate change but then acts exactly in a manner that shows he doesn't believe it, then he effectively a denier.  No question

      However, what he is actually going to do here is still unknown.  He has a big speech tomorrow which may announce real measures and if he also Denis keystone at that time, then this attack goes away.  If he instead gives us toothless words while expanding fossil fuels then he the charge is squarely deserved. He may also delay, which amounts to the same thing  

      We will see in the next six months.  

      Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.

      We've heard more than enough lovely abstract speeches for Obama to last for several lifetimes.

      The President reaffirmed that this is a top tier issue that needs to be addressed by world leaders.
      Um...he IS one of those world leaders.

      His job is do do things.  Not to call on people like him to do things someday, somewhere.

      So how is he "address"-ing climate change?

      Perhaps the diarist is a little harsh, but do-nothing politics is what got us into runaway climate change, and more do-nothing politics ain't gonna get us out of it.
