A good start for President Obama

Back in January, President Obama gave this address on the economy, energy climate and sustainability (yes, he mentioned the magic word!). What he proposes is a snowball which is relatively small potatoes (I just can't help mixing metaphors!) compared with what we have to do to save everybody's skins but if Obama sets it rolling we just might be able to add "the sustainability extras" to the snowball to get it up to a suitable size as it starts to gather speed and the electorate starts to see that altering the way we do things will not be a disaster but just possibly we might end up in a nicer situation.
