Huge Disappointment

I am, of course, referring to Barack Obama. Both generally and
specifically. If I had taken my other job offer and was now living in
DC, I'd gladly go get arrested protesting the Keystone pipeline, which
Obama could prevent with the executive stroke of his pen if he had
actually meant anything he said during his campaign. Instead, James
Hansen says it's game over for the climate. The only good thing about
this situation is my constantly imagining Bill Paxton describing the
fucking of the planet. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsx2vdn7gpY)

Read about it on Salon
(http://www.salon.com/news/global_warming/index.html?story=/tech/htww/2011/08/24/obama_s_keystone_problem)
or with a development economics perspective at the Center for Global
Development (http://blogs.cgdev.org/globaldevelopment/2011/08/obama-set-to-lob-canadian-carbon-bomb-at-india.php).
