“We will respond to the threat of climate change”

Excerpted from the inaugural address of Barach Obama, the 44th president of the United States, on Monday, January 21, 2013 as he was sworn in for his second term. Click here for the full transcript of his speech.

“We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition; we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries – we must claim its promise. That is how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure – our forests and waterways; our croplands and snowcapped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That’s what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared.”

    …Amen to that.

    In warm, arid countries, grass mats serve as a building material. Make a simple mat for a bed, or connect many large mats to make a hut. If in an emergency situation, weave grass mats to create a small, warm shelter. Use these mats in your garden to mark out paths and mulch the areas between plant rows. Grass Mats

    While investigating real estate resources, I discovered this housing web page, OC Housing News. While exploring this Internet site, I encountered a detailed home seller’s eBook, OCHN Sell Your Home Without a Realtor System. The news and housing analysis on this site is first-rate, the writing is engaging, and the PDF downloads are rich with content. I endorse checking out this web page to see for yourself.
