Obama’s Blindness

You have to wonder why an intelligent man like Obama is encouraging increasing oil and natural gas burning and does almost nothing to help along alternative energy. It is as though he has glued his eyes shut to the consequences of global warming. Any fossil fuel we burn now we are later going to have to unburn to capture the CO₂. It is a lot easier and more energy efficient to avoid burning something that to try somehow to unburn it later. The problem is the Citizens United crooked Roberts Supreme Court decision has made it legal for corporations to bribe politicians with unlimited amounts of money. The oil industry is very short sighted and has bribed Obama to behave like a raving asshole. No matter what else he does, future generations will spit on grave for caving.
