Al Gore ripped President Obama’s refusal last week to pursue measures to curbed emissions causing smog.
Wrote Gore: “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.”
Ben Smith: “I think it’s safe to say that the political impact of environmentalists’ recent disappointments has been underestimated.”
