President Barack Obama addresses world leaders at COP15, urging them to consider a global climate pact which takes into account the needs of both developed and developing nations.
President Barack Obama
President Obama is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office, as well as the first president born in Hawaii. Obama previously served as the junior United States Senator from Illinois from January 2005 until he resigned after his election to the presidency in November 2008.
Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was the president of the Harvard Law Review. He was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.
Obama served three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. Following an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, he ran for United States Senate in 2004. During the campaign, several events brought him to national attention, such as his victory in the March 2004 Democratic primary election for the United States Senator from Illinois as well as his prime-time televised keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004. He won election to the U.S. Senate in November 2004.
Obama began his run for the presidency in February 2007. After a close campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party presidential primaries against Hillary Clinton, he won his party's nomination. In the 2008 general election, he defeated Republican nominee John McCain and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Obama is the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate He and his wife, Michelle, are the proud parents of two daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7.
President Barack Obama makes clear that the United States will continue its path towards a clean energy economy despite the outcome of the COP15 conference, but calls on global cooperation to reach an accord that holds all nations accountable.
Obama's plan calls for: mitigation, transparency and financing. "It's a clear formula," he says, "one that embraces the principle of common but differentiated responses and respective capabilities."
Dudes, the world's rainforests are almost gone, we are using finite resources to power our 'economic growth', and investment bankers, corrupt politicians, and corporate CEOs hold all the power, and all hold individual agendas.
I think it is time for a change in structure and institutions, and environmental issues, energy sources, and more equitable sharing of resources and food are all intimately linked.
Please people let's try to change what is clearly wrong.
-'A' CAN cause 'B' to happen faster
- Look at average temperature changes over the last 100 years, and then tell me they have dropped, there are plenty of irregularities in the data to throw you off.
the reason people don't listen to your facts is because the facts are too confusing, they have to have background information to understand it, you say "temperatures are falling!" and i say "temperatures are raising!" who are they to believe? these are both facts, but they seem to contradict each other. If global warming is about the long term effects on the environment, then your short term fact wont have much real effect.
and where does the government place the money collected through taxing? into clean energy! (they're taking money from one company, and putting it into another! big deal)
Does anyone consider the fact the earth's temperature started rising long before Co2 levels did. What does that mean? It means you can't say A caused B if B happened first. Moreover, the earth's temperature has dropped over the last ten years. What does that mean? Man made global warming is a flat out lie. The UN knows it...as well as our elected officials wanting to impose more taxes related to their false claims. It is all about money and power. But I don't expect to change anyone's mind with facts. A man named Henry Rosovsky once said, "Never underestimate the difficulty of changing false beliefs by facts." Those now in government want government to grow. Scientific research is funded by government. Global warming claims create excuses to raise taxes and impose fines, thereby making government larger and more powerful. So those using the "experts findings" are paying the "experts" to find the findings they want found. Do you see the conflict here?
Mr President: We have to take recognise that sea levels are falling: seas are receding. Global Warming is a fact of life but sea levels are not rising they are falling. Sea levels are falling all around the world. Since the Tsunami Earthquake on boxing day 2004 sea levels have fallen accumulatively by six feet worldwide. We have to initiate a study of sea level decline and tell small Island states that they will not be swamped. It is a hoax by the rich nations to terrorise small nations to borrow money to build coastal defenses. That is the hidden agenda. Our Earth is getting hotter internally and melting the ice caps but the ice caps will not disappear and sea level wont rise because the decline of sea levels outstrips and additional water from melting icecaps.
