President Obama's speech to the Copenhagen climate summit

Good morning. It’s an honor to for me to join this distinguished group of leaders from nations around the world. We come together here in Copenhagen because climate change poses a grave and growing danger to our people. You would not be here unless you ”“ like me ”“ were convinced that this danger is real. This is not fiction, this is science. Unchecked, climate change will pose unacceptable risks to our security, our economies, and our planet. That much we know.

So the question before us is no longer the nature of the challenge ”“ the question is our capacity to meet it. For while the reality of climate change is not in doubt, our ability to take collective action hangs in the balance.

I believe that we can act boldly, and decisively, in the face of this common threat. And that is why I have come here today.

Read it all.

    Copenhagen (December ’09) is indeed the [url=][i]Hajj[/i][/url] of the 21st century Religious Left.

    Unfortunately, as is the case with far too many who make the Hajj, they wish to impose their religiosity upon the rest of us.

  2. Daniel Lozier says:

    “Climate summit erupts in ‘deafening applause’ for Hugo Chavez.”—That just about says everything you could say about the leaders and the people attending this event.
    Obama has little, if any, principles except to aggrandize and make himself more and more important. You see that in his foreign policy. Obama lacks a backbone—both a constitutional backbone and a personal backbone. This is a man who is causing us and will continue to cause us a great deal of harm constitutionally and individually in regard to personal freedoms.
