Al Gore eviscerated President Obama for throwing the EPA under the bus last week when he flip-flopped on clean air measures to reduce pollutants that cause smog.
“Instead of relying on science, President Obama appears to have bowed to pressure from polluters who did not want to bear the cost of implementing new restrictions on their harmful pollution — even though economists have shown that the US economy would benefit from the job creating investments associated with implementing the new technology. The result of the White House’s action will be increased medical bills for seniors with lung disease, more children developing asthma, and the continued degradation of our air quality.”
Mr. Gore, the actual winner of the stolen 2000 presidential election is just the latest high profile environmentalist to criticize Obama for bowing to corporate polluters.
Legendary film actor, director, writer and environmentalist Robert Redford recently took President Obama to task recently for flip-flopping on Arctic drilling, the Keystone XL pipeline and smog regulations.
“Like so many others, I’m beginning to wonder just where the man stands.”
