Obama om oljekatastrofen


Her kan du se og lese hele hele talen Barack Obama ga klokken åtte igår kveld (amerikansk tid).

Noen utdrag:

"Now, a mobilization of this speed and magnitude will never be perfect, and new challenges will always arise. I saw and heard evidence of that during this trip. So if something isn't working, we want to hear about it. If there are problems in the operation, we will fix them.

But we have to recognize that, despite our best efforts, oil has already caused damage to our coastline and its wildlife. And sadly, no matter how effective our response is, there will be more oil and more damage before this siege is done."

Obama innrømmer at ikke alt har gått som det skal i opprydningsarbeidet, men viser også en vile til å gjøre noe med det.

Han bruker samtidig muligheten til å snakke om behovet for fornybar energi.

"After all, oil is a finite resource. We consume more than 20 percent of the world's oil, but have less than 2 percent of the world's oil reserves. And that's part of the reason oil companies are drilling a mile beneath the surface of the ocean: because we're running out of places to drill on land and in shallow water.

For decades, we have known the days of cheap and easily accessible oil were numbered. For decades, we've talked and talked about the need to end America's century-long addiction to fossil fuels. And for decades, we have failed to act with the sense of urgency that this challenge requires."
