Obamas climate policy
Obama has set high expectations concerning climate changing:
By 2050 he wants to reduce gas emissions 80 percent and he is willing to invest 150 billion dollars in order to reach this aim. Another topic is fighting unemployment by creating new
“green jobs”. As there are several millions of unemployed people in the USA, he intends to kill two birds with one stone: first, he gives work to jobless people and second, he changes the environmental consciousness by establishing renewable and “clean” energy.
Welcome side effect: using domestic energy sources means getting independent from big oil producers like the Middle East.
Moreover, he wants to field hybrid cars and thus abate carbon dioxide emissions as well as he wants to propose a National Low Carbon Fuel Standard, which will regulate the car’s emissions by law.
