Obama in Wonderland

As reported in The Australian:

“With old friends and former foes, we will work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the spectre of a warming planet,” [Obama] said today in his inaugural address, vowing to pioneer a green revolution in renewable energy.

“We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost,” Mr Obama said.

“We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do.”

Sorry in advance for not buying into the whole Obama thing, but WTF? This is all just hot air. “Roll back the spectre of a warming planet”? Playing God already? Has your science adviser not told you that the planet has been warming and cooling for 4.5 billion years? Wait, it’s John Holdren, he wouldn’t have.

And “restore science to its rightful place”? What, you mean, uncorrupted by politics and self-interest, as it currently is thanks to AGW alarmists like Gore and Hansen? That would be a good thing.

And as for solar and wind power, dream on, and watch your economy die.

Empty words from an empty suit.

    Obama was elected to bring some hope, people want to hear things like this and he delivered it to them. No matter if realistic or not…Now it’s time of good oldschool Keynesian spending all around the world (sigh..), so let’s face it. I think there are worse ways how to waste taxes than wind power plants, so…Take careLorne
