Yes We Canute: Obama Has Four Years To Turn Back The Rising Tide

by | 18th, January 2009

BARACK Obama has four yaars to save the world. Fact:

Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth. Crucially, that action will have to be taken within Obama’s first administration, he added.

What are the odds?

Global warming has, apparently been going on ever since King Alfred burnt the cakes at it can all be cured in four years, which – get this – is the time Obama has been voted into office.

And Obama in on the case:

Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children…that this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal…

Can we do it. Yes we Canute!
