I think we have a problem on global warming. I think there is a debate about whether it's caused by mankind or whether it's caused naturally, but it's a worthy debate. It's a debate, actually, that I'm in the process of solving by advancing new technologies, burning coal cleanly in electric plants, or promoting hydrogen-powered automobiles, or advancing ethanol as an alternative to gasoline.Corn absorbs CO2 as it grows -- it may be a neutral impact. And clean burning coal is not necessarily greenhouse gas free, although the US Government is working on zero emissions plants. With any other president, you could assume that he meant the obvious thing, but with this guy, it really does matter what the meaning of 'is' is. Hydrogen powered automobiles really can reduce greenhouse gas production, by abstracting the power source.
But, if in his third sentence the President suggests reducing net CO2 production as a solution, how can his second sentence denying the 'anthropogenic' part of 'anthropogenic climate change' stand? Well, you have to have his facility for forwarding opposing concepts in the same paragraph.
Art of the possible, and all that. You go, George.
