We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations.—

President Obama set left-wing hearts aflutter and pundits a-Twitter with a mention of “climate change” in his inaugural address.
Glad to hear the section on climate change in Obama's speech. Time for action.—

But as with most of Obama’s talking points, this is not new.
OBAMA: With old friends and former foes, we’ll work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat and roll back the specter of a warming planet. We will not apologize for our way of life nor will we waver in its defense.
Hurray for recycling.
Obama also beat the dead horse of green jobs.
Green jobs. Because that worked out so well in his first term.—
