It was bought and to the whole -- -- -- around.
Yeah basically you know it's not because they read Al Gore merely took -- -- the Halcyon well.
It's because they've basically woke up a lot of the time the Olympics done and said you know what we cannot speak out swim.
Janice -- -- -- drive cannot -- you know so -- that he just going green not a necessity.
And there's one thing we know about necessity she's -- mother of invention and so in China goes green out of necessity.
Watch out -- you won't just by your your your kids -- issues -- teachers and you'll buy your next electric car is it electrical sector and I was there.
Solar panels and and wind turbines China is -- good.
Is the biggest market for wind terms that wind turbines in the world's leading manufacturer and exporter now -- solar technology.
And they're doing this out of necessity.
That be out of an awareness that.
Yeah I thought people in my last book was called up flattened got a case of people but I compete globally the -- -- -- believe -- global warm but this by the company -- global warming that's between you and your beach.
But you better believe -- flattened -- that you better believe that we're gonna go from six point seven billion to nine point two billion people on this planet but 2050.
And you better believe they're more of them in a flat world we'll see -- we live aspire to how we live and be able to live like we live in American players home.
Americans -- Americans would cause an American says -- the American says big Macs.
Or would you think energy demand is gonna go in that kind of little I'm only gonna go one way and that means.
Clean technologies renewable energy have to be the next great global industry.
Either that or -- gasoline gonna cost you fifty dollars a gallon and -- we're gonna burn -- the planet so.
You have to -- this sort of silly debate -- that are on climate changes is not.
And it's not going on in China adaptability and all part because of the leaders most of them are engineers.
And they you do that you assigned to see the -- but mostly because they realized they -- about it.
Then you've got to be the next great great global industry let's -- that.
And Arnold Tom Friedman you know me you know I'm someone -- into sort of until they are.
There were blaming her for this reform Republicans Fox News.
Glued to the Republicans have -- you have you have done their darnedest to basically -- climate change into a hoax number one.
From then number two not a single one of them was supported -- real bomb because that energy bill would definition by definition probably.
What would also they leave energy prices or prices uncovered -- places conga line.
And so they wouldn't do it you you view that assembly's democratic senators who come from called most oil states that they wouldn't do it.
As well and as a result -- all you -- to about ten Republicans -- maybe even eight kicked across the -- you would have had a -- surgical.
So -- think about it we get an energy bill this year.
Now they're Republicans were in the house.
As a lot of people could you do that might.
We probably won't have when the year after or the year after so we're probably go at least three years possibly.
Without a serious energy bill that this is -- time -- China every year is passing legislation.
Are meant to basically improve the energy efficiency of every dollar GDP it produces circuit.
And if it's just so obvious what's gonna help -- -- up and and basically will go on from importing oil from Saudi Arabia to importing our solar panels from China.
Thank you very much have a nice day.
I got to thank him out of themselves cynical.
But I wonder if anybody is four under energy policy.
Even the Democrats -- vote for it goes and are on support they know they can because they know and reality don't -- -- I don't think there's a bit it's a perfectly legitimate question to ask them.
And the big -- missing person here in my view is Barack Obama.
He has the bully pulpit.
He could have sold this issue is on his watch that you know climate change really got completely do you legitimized.
-- Obama is consummated in the sense that the eighteen -- sort of energy environment -- if you energy secretary Nobel Prize circuit.
John Holdren president and science advisor expert on climate head of the American academy of sciences Lisa Jackson -- a bit EPA it's a terrific dynamic woman great speaker.
-- -- former head of the EPA.
Why does energy advisor.
What I can tell you during this debate this last year there are in danger species.
I've seen more than these four people.
Tom DeLay has just kept them completely under wraps for reasons which I do not understand that they've basically weren't a witness protection program.
And as a result we we basically.
We had no real serious energy dependent.
Here's the problem.
President Obama has the same friends President Bush simple and -- -- -- bit bit missing in -- want the same rich white guys are his friends you have more Bush's friends.
It's just really disappointing that he never used the bully pulpit for the reasons you said you know and really meant to -- Don't we just think about OK.
You'd be like -- and we can't party now the I would I'd be in the green Tea Party you know my position -- very simple look at our for a dollar a gallon gasoline tax I want forty cents of that dollar to go to pay down the deficit.
I want forty cents of that dollar to -- pay for health care I want twenty cents of that dollar to go -- Due to to cut out of his way you produce -- -- -- forty cents.
Two unpaid on the deficit I want.
Forty cents to go to pay for a cut in payroll taxes and corporate taxes and electronic -- -- for the deficit.
I don't know what would you get -- you get.
But -- you get improvement on the deficit you cut corporate and payroll taxes for every worker in America.
And at the same time you reduce our dependence and all you have stimulated new industry and you make us less dependent on Saudi Arabia if that isn't that Tea Party approached.
I don't know -- it's.
Win win win win win -- -- -- -- yeah and that's the problem we have one wants to just rail.
And nobody would even think that you clearly in the most simple way and so.
So that's -- you know.
How one I don't have a job that I want to live in China for second OK but I want my own country work.
You and it's not working right now we don't -- aren't split decisions.
I'm starting to -- sorry you don't know really about every six digit lead topic here but members -- and while we were talking earlier.
Want to television monitor or something fell over to studio.
In a middle loud sound Britain.
And -- -- odd man -- that's coming -- -- -- -- in -- and our world I didn't solve the UN general assembly Mitchell's steroid.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Every city so there was so alone.
Well you know I think that the sanctions that the administration has organized some -- this last year and gotten more import most -- the Russians and Chinese to go along with.
I think there's certain hurt I think they're starting to hurt and I think.
He's looking for for some kind of way out the problem we have been Iran does just up did you did you -- -- -- Would love to have a deal with the United States -- because it would be his way of re legitimizing.
After having you know crackdown -- killed all those demonstrators and arrested those demonstrators during their green revolution so he'd love to have a deal with the United States.
That kind of re confirmed him in a way as the leader of Iran he had a lot of enemies at home in Iraq.
They don't want to deal with the United States.
For the same reason I'm in their politics and yours and ours so as a result they they also don't seem to be able to -- together.
Actually cut any kind of deal on the nuclear issue.
And that that's troubling is that cars look a little milestone it is -- the bad guys you know -- the president -- want to church just today.
And I Byron asked Charles as -- -- this is say the present more emotional won't be Romo left other than the fact it is that it wasn't but.
