As a consequence, our agriculture sector actually is contributing more greenhouse gases than our transportation sector. And in the mean time, it’s creating monocultures that are vulnerable to national security threats, are now vulnerable to sky-high food prices or crashes in food prices, huge swings in commodity prices, and are partly responsible for the explosion in our healthcare costs because they’re contributing to type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease, obesity, all the things that are driving our huge explosion in healthcare costs. That’s just one sector of the economy. You think about the same thing is true on transportation. The same thing is true on how we construct our buildings. The same is true across the board. For us to say we are just going to completely revamp how we use energy in a way that deals with climate change, deals with national security and drives our economy, that’s going to be my number one priority when I get into office…” Jade A. says: October 31, 2008 at 11:51 pm Bravo! I very much enjoyed this spoof Mr. Romm. FYI, I voted today for Obama! Our green future is right around the corner. I can see it on the horizon.

In a day or two, though, I will put it after the jump. alex says: November 1, 2008 at 11:07 am It works fine now. Yesterday the video was reporting a % loading on the main page and nothing would budge until it go to 100%. Like the video!
