"Obama Touts U.S. Participation in Global Talks on Climate Change President Obama on Tuesday laid out his intentions for sweeping changes in how Americans use energy, conceding it will not be easy or popular, but noting that he wants the U.S. to participate in talks on the successor to the United Nations' Kyoto Protocol. If you say to a power plant, you have to produce energy in a different way, and that costs them money, then they want to pass that cost on to consumers, which means everybody's electricity prices go up -- and that is something that is not very popular,"he said. During his presidential campaign, Obama said utility bills would "skyrocket" beginning in 2012 when the policy would take effect. That's the same year the Kyoto Protocol expires and the document to come out of talks with the U.N. Climate Change Conference would go into effect." More Here How stupid can O’bama rex be? To tell power plants they have to produce energy a different way is utterly stupid. O’bama rex has ruled out nuclear power so where does he think the energy is going to come from. This is unreal, and the American people elected him president.
