“Forty years ago this week, America celebrated the first Earth Day. Because of the leadership of that generation, we have made remarkable progress in cleaning up the air we breathe and the water we drink and in protecting our natural resources. Today, we are driven by new challenges. America is deeply dependent on foreign oil. Our climate is changing as a result of our carbon emissions, and in order to mitigate the considerable risks of climate change, the world must transition to a sustainable energy future. […] We're off to a strong start, but solving the energy and climate challenge is going to take all of us doing our part, and I look forward to your questions today.”
— Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy, April 22, 2010 (WaPo)
Yeah, I got a question. Forty years ago, the Secretary of Energy concerned himself with national nuclear security issues, not Mickey Mouse bullshit. Climate has been changing since before humans were chimps, with slightly less hair. Do you get out much?

If we have made such "remarkable progress", how come America is as deeply dependent on foreign oil as we were forty years ago? In what way is that a "new" challenge? Have you nothing better to do than be a barker for TheObamaJama Rahm-a-Llama Ding-dong Circus?
