What Should be Next on Obama's Environmental Agenda?
Considering the environmentally-conscious themes of President Obama's Inaugural address, we hope to see some action taken regarding smart energy and green policy in the coming weeks. For instance, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger asked Obama to terminate the recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) barring the state from setting more stringent emissions standards (days later, the president acted on the request).
What would you like to see the Obama administration do next in regards to environmental policy? How should Obama "green" the economic stimulus package? Let us know in the comments, or submit a video response at Live Earth Video (http://video.liveearth.org). We can't wait to hear your thoughts!
Our friends at Enviromedia interviewed a few people earlier this week at Inauguration festivities in Washington about what they thought Obama should do next with environmental policy. Check out some short Q & A’s below.
Just a few days into the Obama presidency we've already seen impressive changes regarding openness, ethics, and an order to shut down the Guantanamo Bay detention center. Obama also put the brakes on potentially devastating legislation pushed through in Bush's final days in office. We hope the new administration works with the same swiftness toward environmental and smart energy issues.
