CONFUSING MESSAGES

Go-ahead for Arctic drilling clashes with global warming message

By KEVIN FREKING, Associated Press

The Obama administration’s approval of drilling for oil in the Arctic Ocean clashes with the message President Barack Obama will deliver when he visits Alaska to emphasize the dangers of climate change, some environmental groups say.

As much as the groups praise Obama for his overall body of work — from stricter fuel-efficiency standards to regulations aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from power plants — they consider the approval of exploratory drilling in the Arctic a stain on his environmental legacy that will send a mixed message to other countries about the seriousness of confronting global warming.

The burning of fossil fuels causes more greenhouse gases to build up in the atmosphere. Some groups would prefer leaving the oil in the ground and not tempting the harsh environmental conditions that could hinder the response to any potential spill.

Obama, who is visiting Alaska now, says he is mindful of the dangers of offshore drilling, particularly given the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

“When it can be done safely and appropriately, U.S. production of oil and natural gas is important,” he said at a news conference earlier this year. “I would rather us, with all the safeguards and standards that we have, be producing our oil and gas, rather than importing it, which is bad for our people, but is also potentially purchased from places that have much lower environmental standards than we do.”

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton made clear on her Twitter account Tuesday that she disagrees with Obama.

“The Arctic is a unique treasure. Given what we know, it’s not worth the risk of drilling,” she wrote.

The administration’s approval of Shell’s exploration efforts has done little to stem criticism from congressional Republicans and industry officials who have often accused it of hindering oil and gas production on federal lands. At the same time, the go-ahead has upset a key base of his support.

This is confusing to me.

President Obama is actively advocating for strong measures to address climate change and global warning. He’s spoken about the higher “emitors” of greenhouse gasses (USA is the second highest in the world) yet at the same time he’s approved Shell’s offshore drilling in the Arctic while, at the same time, being mindful of the dangers of offshore drilling, particularly given the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

There’s a good opportunity to start effective changes and leave a significant “legacy” in issues related to the environment.

I hope this doesn’t prove to be wrong.

There won’t be a second chance if something goes wrong.

A trip to talk about climate change in Alaska, where he just approved Arctic drilling? This is President Barack Obama’s ‘Mission Accomplished‘ moment.

Just as George W. Bush’s ‘Mission Accomplished’ was a wake up call about a president in deep denial, so too is President Obama’s Alaska trip – unless he announces a major change in policy.

~Obama’s Alaska Visit On Climate Change Has Almost Everyone Upset~

~Published on Aug 31, 2015~

Barack Obama is managing to get environmentalists and Ohio politicians upset with him on his three-day trip to Alaska.

During his visit, he’s exposing Americans to the effects of climate change: melting glaciers, thawing permafrost and eroding shorelines.

Obama will also address international leaders to advocate for tougher climate-change policy at the GLACIER conference.

Jon Stewart’s Final ‘The Daily Show’ Brims With Warmth, Emotion

Genuine warmth is an extraordinarily rare commodity on television, which is why Jon Stewart’s final “The Daily Show” was something to be treasured, savored and maybe even played back a few times. As with most media-hyped events, Stewart’s exit came with such inflated expectations that it’s the sort of thing the host himself would have delighted in skewering.

Yet the parade of former correspondents who lined up to bid him farewell not only celebrated what he called “the talent that has passed through these doors” but the guy who gave them that opportunity as he rides into the sunset.

Jonathan “Jon” Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz; November 28, 1962) is an American comedian, writer, producer, director, actor, media critic, and television host. He was the host of The Daily Show, asatirical news program that aired on Comedy Central, from 1999 to 2015.

Stewart started as a stand-up comedian, but branched into television as host of Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central. He went on to host his own show on MTV, called The Jon Stewart Show, and then hosted another show on MTV called You Wrote It, You Watch It. He has also had several film roles as an actor, but has done few cinematic projects since becoming the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central in early 1999. He is also a writer and co-executive producer of the show. After Stewart joined, The Daily Show steadily gained popularity and critical acclaim, resulting in his eighteen Emmy Awards.

Stewart has gained acclaim as an acerbic, satirical critic of personality-driven media shows, in particular those of the U.S. media networks such as CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC. Critics say Stewart benefits from a double standard: he critiques other news shows from the safe, removed position of his “fake news” desk.
