Phrases we really don’t need to hear during this speech, or any speech by President Obama or any other Democrat: “all-of-the-above strategy,” “offshore drilling,” “fracking,” “natural gas as a bridge fuel,” etc. Just stick to the science, which has told us over and over again what the situation is and what we need to do, and then do it!
UPDATE 1:16 pm: The speech, which I thought was very strong, just ended. Unfortunately, given that the Republican Party has gone completely insane (and sold out to the big carbon polluters), it looks like those of us who actually respect science will have to do it ourselves. Unless, of course, a miracle happens and Republicans move back towards the strong environmental legacy that’s certainly part of their party’s historical DNA.
