Obama Shamelessly Exploits Children to Promote His Climate Change Agenda
Liberals love to try and say it is for the children.
Check it out:
In a classic left-wing ploy, President Obama dealt the child health card during his weekly radio address from the Children’s National Medical Center to promote his new EPA rules targeting coal-fired power plants.
While the new rules to be announced June 2 are going to target carbon dioxide because of global warming fears, Obama’s address also included health concerns associated with emissions from burning fossil fuels such as coal that are already regulated by the EPA.
Although the rules are intended to help Washington meet international obligations to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming, the White House’s focus on human health benefits is part of a sales pitch to drum up support from the American public.
Obama recorded his address at a medical center in Washington, where children with asthma were treated.
“Often, these illnesses are aggravated by air pollution, pollution from the same sources that release carbon and contribute to climate change,” he said. “And for the sake of all our kids, we’ve got to do more to reduce it.”
