The president-elect records a short video for a meeting of climate wonks in California, pledging $15 Billion a year for clean energy research. Obama’s plan also calls for a cap-and-trade system that will help reduce U.S. emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 and by a further 80 per cent by 2050. "Anyone who wants to develop clean energy has a friend in the White House."
And not a moment too soon. Watch the video. It fills me with hope.
