Obama Weekly Address

George Wenschhof

President Obama focused on energy independence in his weekly address, by touting increased natural gas production, more efficient energy use and a drop in carbon emissions in his speech, arguing that lower carbon emissions don't slow economic growth.

"Between more clean energy, and less wasted energy, our emissions of dangerous carbon pollution are actually falling. That’s good news for anyone who cares about the world we leave to our kids," he said. "And while our carbon emissions have been dropping, our economy has been growing. Our businesses have created 7.8 million new jobs in the past 44 months. It proves that the old argument that we can’t strengthen the economy and be good stewards of our planet at the same time is a false choice. We can do both. And we have to do both."
