And what a grand day it was. There’s nothing like the joy and hope of new beginnings.
But today was an even grander day, as President Obama signed 2 executive orders that mark the launch of his administration’s Green Energy Agenda, designed (in part) to bring energy independence by increasing the fuel efficiency of American cars.
In his remarks this morning he stated:
“It’s time for America to lead, because this moment of peril must be turned into one of progress. If we take action, we can create new industries and revive old ones; we can open new factories and power new farms; we can lower costs and revive our economy. We can do that, and we must do that. There’s much work to be done. There is much further for us to go.
But I want to be clear from the beginning of this administration that we have made our choice. America will not be held hostage to dwindling resources, hostile regimes, and a warming planet. We will not be put off from action because action is hard. Now is the time to make the tough choices. Now is the time to meet the challenge at this crossroad of history by choosing a future that is safer for our country, prosperous for our planet, and sustainable.”
Yes, at last and Thank You.
