    President Barack Obama said at a town hall event in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday that unless we find new way of producing energy “the planet will boil over” if people in Africa are allowed to attain air conditioning, automobiles and big houses.

    “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.”

    "THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING", loudly exclaimed Chick----er, uh -- the ZERO!

    I'm sure our resident tag-alongs of the ZERO are already planning to liquidate their assets before the sky completely collapses!?:tongue3::laugh:

    There's a simple solution. Just lower the living standards in the industrialized nations until it all evens out.

    It'd be easy . . .

    The mechanism for it is already mostly in place. It's called globalization through free trade agreements and Agenda 21. And carbon taxes, lot's of carbon taxes that go directly to Obama and Gore.

    You would think that he would say that air conditioning can save lives during extreme heat waves. Next he is going to say that being hungry is good because the USA burns about half of the corn crop to make ethanol to drive their air-conditioned cars. His airplane trip to Africa probably left a larger carbon footprint than some of the countries that he visited do in a month. Obama just can't stop talking. He is worse than me.

    Sure and the corn is about waist high around here as we have been getting lots of rain so far this summer.

    However, it turns out that ethanol is actually bad for air pollution and it is not too good for motors either. It gets less mileage than gasoline and has to be heavily subsidized by the taxpayer to be manufactured. If they federal government ended the subsidy to ethanol manufacturers and ended the mandate that gasoline must carry a certain percent of ethanol, gasoline prices would go down and we would have cleaner air and get more miles to the gallon in our cars.

    It is estimated that known reserves of oil at the current high rate of consumption are good for another 100 years.

    We could cut down on carbon emissions if Obama and Gore airplane pooled.

    It's not about carbon emissions anyway it's about deindustrializing the USA and keeping Africa under the thumb of the "international community". We don't hear to much about the carbon emissions China is pumping out, and it's ALOT because the global elite aka the "international community" have moved all their investments there.

    Obama needs to get real! Air conditioning in Africa could save a lot of lives.

    What Africans really need are more of Bill Gates outdated vaccinces and GMO fruits and veggies. Because globalist eugenecists like Bill Gates loves everyone so much.
