The president remarked that some claims made by opponents of his energy bill were cynical and contradictory to scientific evidence that supports the need for greener energy solutions.
Cambridge, Massachusetts (WiredPRNews.com) – President Barack Obama recently dismissed arguments by many opponents of his energy bill as cynical claims made to stagnate progress on dealing with major environmental concerns. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Obama spoke to an audience at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Friday about global warming and energy innovation.
Obama is quoted by the AP as stating of the issue, “There are those who will suggest that moving toward clean energy will destroy our economy, when it’s the system we currently have that endangers our prosperity and prevents us from creating millions of new jobs.”
Obama is further quoted as remarking that some in opposition of proposed measures “make cynical claims that contradict the overwhelming scientific evidence when it comes to climate change — claims whose only purpose is to defeat or delay the change that we know is necessary.”
