Climate Changed: Corporate America Is Getting Ready to Monetize Climate Change. (BLOOMBERG NEWS)
CORPORATE AMERICA created this problem. Our love affair with the automobile, air pollution and the internal combustion engine helped, but Big Oil and Big Coal and the electric power industry's failure to conserve energy had a big part of it. Once Corporate America disposed of Jimmy Carter's 1977 energy plan, it was Business As Usual, with Ronald Wilson Reagan (666) ordering the removal of the solar collectors from the White House roof. We will rue the day that Congress and the media did not take Jimmy Carter's energy crisis warnings seriously. "Our energy problems and our environmental problems have the same cause --- wasteful use of resources. Conservation solves both problems at once," President Carter said.
