Submission + - Obama takes forceful stand on climate and tech->

dcblogs writes: In his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama on Monday argued with certainty and forcefulness about the dangers of climate change and the role of technology in fighting it. It wasn't just a moral point for Obama, but a jobs issue as well. Obama said that the U.S. "cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries — we must claim its promise. That is how we will maintain our economic vitality." The president led this call with a blunt statement about the moral consequences of inaction. "We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations," he said.
