Seagulls: No new technologies for CO2 mitigation
A bird in a glass, no new technology for CO 2 mitigation.
And, by the way, that’s not all the birds we’ve got here.
We’ve got to find new ways to use the resources we’ve already got.
The best way to do that is to use some of our natural resources.
We’re a lot better at that than we were five years ago.
The question is, how do we do it now?
And I think that we can do that by focusing on the technologies that have already been developed.
That means getting the right technologies into the ground.
That’s where the research that we’re doing on this is leading.
I want to focus on the ones that are already out there.
We have a few examples of technologies that are now being used by us.
We also have some that we haven’t even seen yet.
So, we have a bunch of technologies out there that have not been developed and that are potentially going to become part of the solution to our climate change problem, and they have the potential to solve a lot of problems we need to solve, including how we move away from fossil fuels, and how we get to zero net carbon emissions, and ways to lower the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The problem is, we’re not making any progress on them.
There are a couple of new technologies out that we have in the pipeline, but we don’t have the technology to make it happen.
And that’s what I’m here to talk about.
But, by all means, use the technology that you already have and go ahead and do the research to get it.
But do it wisely.
And don’t be a jerk.
There’s plenty of other technologies that could be used to make a big difference in our future.
I think we’re going to have to take a long hard look at the way we do that.
I’m looking forward to working with all of you.
And I hope you’ll join me.
We are going to do some stuff in Washington.
So let’s go.
[applause] And I want you to take some time to go to the EPA website and check out some of the resources available, including the State of the Union speech from President Obama.
The State of Washington has been one of the most effective states in dealing with CO2.
They’ve reduced CO2 emissions by almost 50 percent in the last few years.
But there are some really big questions about how to make this happen, and some really difficult problems that we still have to work through.
And we’re looking at how to get to a carbon-neutral economy.
We need to be making progress on reducing emissions, but there are still many challenges to overcome, including what to do with our oil, gas and coal industries.
And this is going to be a big, important and long-term process.
It’s going to take time.
It requires collaboration, and we have to make sure that we understand what the issues are, and what the solutions are, so we can build a sustainable future.
So let me talk to you about those issues.
There is a lot at stake here.
Let’s start with oil.
It is going through a major change right now, with the decision to shut down a significant part of our oil industry, which is a huge part of American economy.
I’ve got the great news.
The President is committed to a long-overdue and ambitious transition of the U.S. oil industry.
We know that our oil sector is responsible for about half of all our new jobs.
It has saved more than $100 billion, and it has put more than a million Americans out of work.
The shale oil revolution has also provided tremendous opportunities for the U,S.
The U.K. has also done a tremendous job with shale oil and gas, as well.
We want to see a lot more of that happening here.
And the President has called on us to help the U.,S.
and other countries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
So the President is making a commitment to help keep our country and the world safe and to help make our economy and our lives better.
And as I said, I’ve made it very clear that the U of A and all our industries have to get a lot stronger.
We can’t continue to make progress on the environment, on climate change, and on our energy policy while we’re cutting jobs and hurting our economy.
So it’s very important that we all work together.
I believe the United States is a global leader in environmental protection.
I know that we’ve been a leader in reducing CO2 and protecting our environment.
And so, I want us to do even more.
And what we’re announcing today is an ambitious plan to reduce CO2 by 50 percent by 2025, to 30 percent by 2030, to 10 percent by 2050.
This is the plan that we are
