Say, How’d Obama Get To His “Green” Energy Speech In Las Vegas?

It’s actually good to see Obama embrace natural gas

(Marketwatch) President Barack Obama spoke yesterday at the UPS Depot in Las Vegas, Nevada promoting natural gas-fueled trucking as part of his “Blueprint for an economy that’s built to last,” unveiled at his January 24 “State of the Union” address to Congress, according to Clean Energy Fuels Corp.

In his remarks, President Obama proposed several federal initiatives favoring the use of natural gas for transportation, including getting more natural gas vehicles on the road using federal fleets and helping local governments upgrade their fleets, offering new tax incentives to help companies buy more clean trucks, working with the private sector to help develop natural gas fueling stations between cities for more natural gas corridors along our highways, and launching a competition to encourage new breakthroughs for natural gas vehicles.

Oh, and then

    I’m sure all those vehicles were battery powered. You don’t expect Chancellor Obama to be a hypocrite, do you?

    Careful what you say, the Feds are listening.

    While I get the point, I wonder how much Obama had to do with the organization of the caravan.

    He certainly doesn’t pick out how many people from the Secret Service come with him. He doesn’t say “you have this many vehicles to cover me” to local law enforcement.

    So I am not sure that this can be laid at the feet of Obama.

    HOWEVER! That being said, the event and the motorcade does show the impact of the types of vehicles Obama proposes for the rest of us. One wonders why the Obama limo and the follow cars can’t be battery powered if he is for them.

    Heck, build a limo on the Volt platform and see how that works out. 😉

  3. That is a rather lengthy motorcade. I have no idea if that’s the norm or not. Maybe it’s always like that due to security? Maybe that’s the secret service?

    You guys just dont seem to get irony. And the hypocritical nature of the event.
