Good. Get on with it.

And let's hope the Republicans won't play politics with this. It's way too important.

I am afraid I have to say I'll believe it when I see it.

I think Obama is very serious about this. However, efforts to work on this with people that can not spell science, and sure don't understand even the most basic concepts of human anatomy are not likely to be receptive to moving this country to adopt policies that do require at least a passing knowledge of scientific inquiry.

Agreed, Kit - he can lead the donkeys to water but he can't always make them realize it's even water....sad to say there are still too many denying climate change.

Through the ages we see people that have been unwilling to accept true science. It is sad to say that this is still happening in our day and age. Many humans do not seem to equipped with much foresight with regard to the consequences of their actions against nature. President Obama is going to have to fight hard to stem the deniers who want to propel us into an irreversible and very dangerous situation with our environment.

Noted w/thanks, Cher. Yes, Kit's correct--the heads of the House Science Comm. are members of the GOP. So, we can petition them, e.mail and phone them with our comments....but, the most impact would come from their own constituents. Any of us with Dem. members on that committee should definitely contact them.

It only took him 4 years to say these words. Now, if he doesn't mess this up, he will bring in the leading researchers, scientists, environmentalists to make a difference.

He's going to work with who? Boehner?

Sure, he'll "address" it. But the time for talk is long past. He needs to walk the walk. Make that run, damn it.

The agencies, starting with EPA which has already been directed by the courts to do so, can do more, faster than the current Congress (i.e., House) ever will do. If Obama committed to kicking the agencies' butts into high gear, I'd feel a lot more certain that this isn't just our old friend, the Compromiser-In-Chief speaking.

PS: Yes, I voted for him; but, really, it was more that I voted against Romney/Ryan.
