President Obama speaking to the League of Conservation Voters: He’s tryin’, but …

… I don’t know if we can get to where we need to go without significant, economy-impacting demand side reductions, as mentioned in the speech. And President Obama’s administration seems to be choosing economy over danger. And natural gas is very dicey, because of fugitive methane and because the investors in this new infrastructure don’t know, realize, or appreciate they’re going to have to give it up before depreciation is done.

We still need a carbon-fee-and-dividend program. And there’s an opportunity to develop a cross-party approach to this essential program.

And I don’t like the equivocation in President Obama’s speech where he says “Taking carbon dioxide out of the air” where he means “Keeping carbon dioxide out of the air.”

But I very like the “poundin’ the rock” story.
