Gordon Brown believes he may have saved the world last November with his global anti-recession package but it is time for him to step aside, and play Robin to Obama’s Batman to finish the job. [Sorry Gordon, it is back to being number two, which is where you perform best]
Let’s look at Obama’s plan which not only saves America first, and then the world, from economic depression, but from climate change, energy dependency on unreliable sources and air pollution. Not bad for the first week in the job!
On economic revival and energy dependency:
“We will commit ourselves to steady, focused, pragmatic pursuit of an America that is freed from our energy dependence, and empowered by a new energy economy that puts millions of our citizens to work.”
On climate change:
“My administration will not deny facts. We will be guided by them.”
On air pollution:
Obama signed a memorandum requiring the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider an application (previously blocked by the Bush administration) by California to set more stringent auto emissions and fuel efficiency standards than required by federal law.
It looks like Obama is going to take on the delinquent USA motor industry and try and drag it into the 21st century.
