While we’re on the subject, here’s this from the New York Times, comments from President-elect Barack Obama on whether he’d scale back his climate change goals until the economy improves. Short answer: No.
“When I am president, any governor who’s willing to promote clean energy will have a partner in the White House. Any company that’s willing to invest in clean energy will have an ally in Washington. And any nation that’s willing to join the cause of combating climate change will have an ally in the United States of America.”
