Absolutely, entirely, barking mad.
Barack Obama should set drastic targets to force the US to switch to renewable energy in an effort to slow down climate change, according to the former vice president Al Gore. Gore said that one of Obama\’s first acts as US president should be to demand a move to 100% renewable energy within 10 years.
"We can do that," he said
Erm, no, we can\’t.
We couldn\’t even get to the point that all new plant built in a decade was renewable only, let alone make ourselves immeasurably poorer by tearing down the energy production sector that we already have.
It\’s not just that we don\’t want to do this incredibly stupid thing it\’s that there\’s no possible way that we could.
Might I just say thanks to those hanging chads that this buffoon never did become the US President?
