Obama Attacks Renewable Energy Critics
In a speech earlier today in Washington, US President Barack Obama ridiculed critics of renewable energy sources, calling them "naysayers" and comparing them to the "flat-earthers of yesteryear". Obama went on to state that "a lot of the folks who are running for a certain office who shall go unnamed, they've been talking down new sources of energy, They dismiss wind power. They dismiss solar power. They make jokes about biofuels. They were against raising fuel standards. I guess they like gas-guzzlers." Obama's recent statements seem to indicate increased funding for renewable energy projects in the US if he gets in for a second term.
