I cannot believe in your promises any longer. The passing of the cap and trade laws in the house you have called a victory. A victory for who? We don’t even know that the C02 emissions are a problem and in fact more scientists are coming forward now to say there is no proof it is the cause of global warming. The real problem is the industrialization taking place in the rainforests all over the world. “Clear cuts” is a term used by our paper industry that use equipment to flatten entire rainforests and remove trees that are as thick as a car is wide and as long as a skyscraper is tall. Activists that are willing to place their bodies in harms way to stop the trucks from reaching their destination are met by police officers that are only there to help enforce the industries right to destroy our homelands yet not to enforce our right to fight them with non-violent protest.
It does not take a Harvard or Yale degree to figure out that a civilization must be able to survive on renewable resources or it is not going to be a civilization very long. Common sense should tell us that we cannot live on a dying planet, nor that we would want to. We need a government that represents the common intelligence and understanding of not only our right to live but our right to live on a green planet with oxygen and renewable resources.
All governments fight wars with each other to control the oil and build new pipelines. The problem is not controlling the oil, the problem is learning how to survive on the planet without the need for oil because it is a finite resource. I think even a first grader could understand the concept that oil will not last forever and that when the oil is gone what we are left with is a planet full of junk cars that are of no use to anyone and an ugliness created by the pastimes of our industries greed. Since you are restructuring the car industry, please tell us that you will no longer be manufacturing cars that run on gas and oil. You would cause the people to swell up in agreement and give them new hope that you finally seek the changes that we must begin believing in. Changes that represent an entirely new way of life. GM and FORD CEO’s have known for years that the people have begun to feel guilty buying cars that do not conform and represent the coming of a new age. We hold them responsible for not making changes that society at large has already made. However, if you fail to make the changes now I do not see the people believing America has a future worth saving. Take away the hope of a better future and America may not ever recover from the economic disaster she is facing today. Give America a whisper of hope and she will sustain and duplicate the beauty from within until the entire planet feels her wrath.
The ridiculous bill fighting C02 is a joke when nothing is being done to even slow down the removal of trees that provide the Oxygen we need to breath. We can see the destruction of rainforests and the devastating deserted wasteland that takes its place. Yet the bill you fight for is one that does not show us anything. No new growth even occurs on the land destroyed and thousands of wildlife species disappear as a consequence. How can we say we care about the planet? We do not even care about the consequences of destroying the beauty and necessity of our wonderful rainforests. Prove to us that you understand we do not need to be perfecting the art of destruction. We have that talent figured out already. Show the world we can build a future that represents a world worth fighting for, worth living in. Show us a new vision of the future that holds the industry accountable and stop taxing the American people for the mistakes made on Wall street. You are starting to look like you were always in Wall streets pocket from day one. You have given in to all of their requests and held no one accountable for anything in the previous administration. Not even torture. So now they kick back in their mansions of gold while we are left paying the bills with our monopoly money collected from cigarette tax, cap and trade scams and more bail-outs then anyone cares to remember.
What is saddest of all is that the people of the world put their faith in the promise of you, Obama. You have been letting everyone down that believed in you. You have caved in to the big Wall street bankers and sold our country out like everyone else when what we really needed was a man with conviction. You cannot convince us that you did not understand as your level of intelligence suggests that you did understand and yet you still chose to let the lobbyists continue to dictate how the world should be even knowing that the world will become a very ugly place if they continue to get their way. The worst part of it all is that you are not even trying to be the man we all believed you could be. We wanted to see CHANGE. The only thing you have changed is our minds about you, about our government and our beliefs that you could actually make a difference.
