"So we have a choice to make. We can remain one of the world's leading importers of foreign oil, or we can make the investments that would allow us to become the world's leading exporter of renewable energy. We can let climate change continue to go unchecked, or we can help stop it. We can let the jobs of tomorrow be created abroad, or we can create those jobs right here in America and lay the foundation for lasting prosperity."
-President Obama, March 19, 2009
While the presidents efforts are a step in the right direction we have to put the focus on a Marshall Plan for America that rebuilds America's infrastructure, our schools, and adds to that focus a realistic plan to address our energy needs for the future, and bring the worlds environmental problems to the forefront.
