It just goes to show you how "brainless" Obama is by making comments like this.

On June 29, 2013, President Obama participated in the “Young African Leaders Initiative Town Hall” in Johannesburg, South Africa. Toward the very end of his remarks, he said something very telling about his world view:

Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over — unless we find new ways of producing energy.

Here's the link

I didn't overlook it because it was one of his main issues during his first campaign. Though it didn't happen because he gave all your money away to his friends who closed their phoney green tech corporations after they hid the money in the Caymen Islands. Now it seems he's just decided to follow Bush's plan of tormenting the rest of the world and stealing their resources while lining the pockets of his cronies with more bullshit contracts and initiatives.

What I find interesting is that you along with others think Solar is the way to go. Well then do you have solar panels on you home? Does anyone here who thinks solar is the way to go have solar panels on their homes? Probably not.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (23961) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Solar panels are not the be all of green energy production Zophim99. But you know that - you just want to be a shit.

Speaking in Cape Town at the end of June, Barack Obama unveiled a new multi-billion dollar power initiative, Power Africa, aimed at doubling sub-Saharan access rates, boosting generation capacity by 10,000MW and connecting more than 20m households and businesses to the grid over the next five years. Under the scheme, the US government will provide $7bn of financial support, while a major private sector investment drive will pump an additional $9bn-worth of investment into African power projects. Power Africa has identified six initial partner countries – Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria and Tanzania – all of which “have set ambitious goals in electric power generation and are making the utility and energy sector reforms to pave the way for investment and growth”, according to the White House.

There is enough to slam the guy on. I know this is hard for you, but you don't have to twist shit. Further, he isn't up for election.

Idiot overlooked the end of the last line of his(?) own post = "unless we find new ways of producing energy."

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

I don't think it overlooked it at all. It's more tea toler shite and a theme for the day. http://occupywallst.org/forum/solar-power-failing-world-wide/

Opposite speak. Looks nice to the public in the title/heading - as long as they don't look beyond that point.

Yah, and here you are bitching because of government budget cuts due to the Sequester, which by the way, is why Obama claims it is the reason why visitors can't tour the White House.

But no one on this site is complaining about all the money that is being sent abroad - millions upon millions of dollars that can be used to build the Infrastructure here that you along with others are so concerned about.

He is a moron to make the comment "the planet will boil over".

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Sure we do. We discuss it frequently. In fact, the majority of the money that is sent to any other country is not "free money". It is used to pay for services or products provided by Americans. The US does not do anything that doesn't benefit the US.

Listen, Tea Toler, you guys need to get your head in the game because if the only thing that your crowd is going to run on is I hate Obama then you don't have anything.

[-] -1 points by Stormcrow2 (-184) 1 year ago

So why can't we take care of the thousands of people in this country in need of services or products that can be provided by Americans to this country?

How about we focus on what's going in this country with people who need help instead of sending arms to Syria.
