Obama: Energy and Environment Directives

Here's a source for primary information about Obama's Energy and Environment Directives on the California waiver and the CAFE standards.  I searched for this yesterday and couldn't find it -- maybe some of you had the same problem.

Today, January 27, we posted a lengthy summary of various reactions to President Obama's Climate Change and Energy Presidential Memos on our eNewsUSA blog at: http://enewsusa.blogspot.com/. The summaries include links to the full text of the releases. The posting includes both positive and negative reactions from U.S. Congressional leaders, industry, environment and government organizations. The posting also includes links to the full text of the President Obama Memos. Also included, on the January 26 posting, are a summary of President Obama statement on the Memos and links to the full text and video of the speech and related information. The posting also includes some clarifications of some misleading reporting and statements that have been made regarding the President's announcement and the Memos.

An important move, especially in conjunction with enabling the Department of Transportation to enforce improved mileage standards; 40% by 2020. Now consider the study just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. According to author Susan Solomon in an NPR interview, “Turning off the carbon dioxide emissions won’t stop global warming . . . Climate change is essentially irreversible." That gives us more reason to act now.
