WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is preparing to unveil his long-awaited national plan to combat climate change in a major speech, he announced on Saturday.

"There's no single step that can reverse the effects of climate change," Obama said in an online video released by the White House. "But when it comes to the world we leave our children, we owe it to them to do what we can."

What are we leaving our children?

Massive amounts of debt. Foreign nations under the rule of islamists, working toward a new caliphate.

A nuclear Iran.

A free pass for border invaders.

The destruction of the best healthcare system in the world.

Gov'ts spying on every citizen, with the power consolidated among a few.

We are no longer the best health system in the world. That is the AMA lobby. The current insurance system dictates care and payment. Are you comfortable with seeing any doctor sanctioned by your plan and unable to see a doctor outside your plan? Islam has existed since 610 A.D., not exactly a new religion. Who are we to say that these countries governed by religious leaders should not exist? I know, they are a threat to us? tell me when, in history, countries did not war? I am not defending behaviors of these countries. The Ayatollah is a religious man. Some suggest we need an individual with strong Christian principles as our leader. Slippery slope when politics and religion are mixed. Religion is an individual choice, governance is a collective choice by majority. BTW, Erik, sometimes you raise some interesting issues. You seem really paranoid lately. We all go back and forth on the gas industry, and surveillance but you seem consumed with doom and gloom.

The gas industry threw the coal industry under the bus. The stupid people blame government. Coal can not make itself competitive with other fossil fuels.

"Coal can not make itself competitive with other fossil fuels."


Then how can developing nations afford to buy it from the US and transport it? They could put in their own wind turbines, solar panels, LNG terminals to have natural gas fired power plants, oil fired power plants, wood fired, etc. instead of coal.

Spike, get sick and you will want to be treated here. With all of it's problems we still have the best health care system in the world concerning care. Paying for it has issues. You complain about insurance companies making decisions but don't seem to have a problem with putting the same bureacrats in the IRS who manipulated tax code for political gain of the President in charge of decisions affecting our care. Wonder how much you attitude would change if all of that power ends up in a Republicans hands?

CMReeder-"The gas industry threw the coal industry under the bus. The stupid people blame government. Coal can not make itself competitive with other fossil fuels."

The gas company aren't the ones who imposed the ridiculously strict rules of emission on the industries using coal to make power and heat. The EPA did that, with Obama's encouragement. It's the regulations imposed by the government on those burning coal that made coal unaffordable to burn, not the coal industry.

So, if we can make the U.S. a better place for just on child, (sniff, sniff, wipe a tear from our eye) we can finish off the economy of the country and put hundreds of thousands of people out of work. Of course it's still alright for our military to be overseas being killed by Taliban infiltrators. We don't need to save the country for them, do we.
