Entrenched business want to continue profiting from brown technologies.

That’s all well and good for now. But there has been no major push for clean energy technology. And this is what is REALLY needed if we are to lead in the 21st century. I haven’t seen any incentives for clean energy development yet. Obama needs to push the issue on clean tech.

But even more importantly he needs to do what he can to remove corporate constituents. Corporations are not people. If business is allowed to sway law makers into making the environment easy for them to profit while they do nothing to innovate, then innovation will go out the window in favor of easy profit. This is happening now and is why there is such a strong lobby against climate change bills. They are being obstructed by entrenched brown energy companies.

Get rid of corporate citizenship. Strike down corporate personhood and return the government of the people back to the people.

And Obama didn’t get “all wound up”. He used the friendly question to launch a moronic speech about renewable energy, and he gave a lame defense of man-made global warming.
Obama knows NOTHING about “unleashing dynamism” in the energy-production sector. And the Democrats have stopped aggressive drllling for 30 years. That’s where we’ve gotten killed. If the Democrats want us to move towards the quasi-socialist states like Norway (which they DO want), then we are freaking economic toast if we can’t drill and mine the daylights out of our vast natural resources the way Norway does. We can’t have it both ways. Ergo, the Democrats are killing us. We MUST start shrinking the cost of fed and state govt. We are in BIG trouble, and Obama fiddling while Rome burns is NOT acceptable. Thus, the Tea Parties!
