It’s time to call it like it is: anyone who pushes an “All of the Above” energy strategy that would dig up more than a third of our current fossil fuel reserves is simply in denial about the realities of climate change.
Oil Change International applauds President Obama today for his show of leadership on climate change. By recognizing that “we can’t just drill our way out of the energy and climate challenge that we face” the President has firmly put our nation’s commitment to our future and our children above the profits of the fossil fuel industry.
The official policy of the Obama administration now asserts that the social cost of carbon emissions to society are 60% higher than they previously estimated.
It’s pretty safe to assume one or both of the candidates will bring up energy issues in some predictable ways.
