Nancy Pelosi Talks about Earth Day and Climate Change

ImageSpeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a statement marking the 38th Earth Day. Pelosi talked about the challenge of climate change, “On this Earth Day, the greatest challenge facing the United States, and indeed our world, is climate change. Its effects already can be seen in severe weather, coastal flooding, deadly heat waves, and spreading infectious diseases.”

She also mentioned the steps Congress has taken to combat climate change, “We enacted bipartisan legislation that increases the efficiency of appliances and lighting and boosts fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks for the first time in 32 years. This increase in fuel efficiency alone will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an amount equivalent to taking 28 million cars off the road in the year 2020 alone. We also established a Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming to raise the visibility of this crucial issue and are committed to considering carbon cap-and-trade legislation, which is critical to combating the climate crisis.”

She concluded by quoting the Old Testament, “The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and every day, let us honor the earth and our future generations with a commitment to fight climate change.”

Climate change is one of the biggest issues that the next president will have to face. It is amazing that Congress has been able to accomplish as much as it has on this issue. George W. Bush has provided two terms of constant obstruction. I believe that it is possible for the United States to do their part without hurting themselves in the global marketplace.

I don’t think the reasoning that China and India are doing it so why shouldn’t we, cuts it anymore. I am no Al Gore, but I just don’t see the harm in a cleaner planet. It is so common sense why would anyone oppose it?

  1. When Pelosi start talking about anything you better watch your wallet and bank account because she wants the money you have left after taxes too.and as far as global warming, the mn who started the weather channel is in the process of suing enviromental high priest Al Gore and the other purveyors of global warming to gt actual science involved to debunk the myth. All the socialist want is control over mor of your money and your life.

  2. Pelosi wants all the US oil reserves to be released for a 10 day supply for the poor.She and Gavin Newman are the self proclaimed messiah of the poor undocumented(illegal aliens) in San Francisco. Look what happened in her town when illegal aliens gunned down some innocent legal americans..her city a sanctuary for all leftwing nuts, tree hugging hippies, and moonbeam Attorney General Brown who changed the wording on the Nov 4 ballot proposition to overturn same sex marriage. Yeah Pelosi is all against offshore oil drilling. Feed the Arabs with trillions and someday they will truly own america..lock stock and barrel ( with oil of course ) Congress has not done one bit to solve the energy crises. When the libs could not justify their claim on global warming, they switch to “climate change” duh its like talking 4 seasons,wet,dry,or summer winter fall spring..climate changes during these times..go figure.Nancy & AG Moonbeam, you can talk about Earth Day all yeare long..we all know the earth spins and complete its task in 24 ours..you don’t ..you keep on spinning your spun of lies and clueless about everything every average american does in their average daily life.All we need from these politicians is to keep america safe, secure and free and let us keep some of our paychecks a little more by not charging too much taxes to pay for your pork barrels, and your endless entitlement measures which we the average middle class are paying for the rest of lives and thereafter.Taxing everyone from womb to tomb is way too much.

  3. Pelosi says”climate change is one of the biggest issues the next president will have to face” Excuse me Ms Pelosi ..are you living in the fantasy world of Narnia. Why don’t we all learn to chant now..: Give peace a chance, we are the world.
    Sure the working class american can’t get to work on a$5.00 a a gallon gas. Ms Congresswoman speaker, Keep your priorities on solving the energy crises first.. now.
