The Obama plan

Some very encouraging messages from president Obama. Lets hope he lives long enough to implement them!:

"We will commit ourselves to steady, focused, pragmatic pursuit of an America that is freed from our energy dependence, and empowered by a new energy economy that puts millions of our citizens to work."

"Now is the time to meet the challenge of this crossroads of history, by choosing a future safer for our country, prosperous for our planet, and sustainable."

"The days of Washington dragging its heels are over."

"My administration will not deny facts. We will be guided by them."

The president also announced plans to make all federal government buildings more energy efficient, and pledged to cut families's energy bills by "weatherising" 2.5 million homes.

He also said the US would double its capacity for "green" energy generation, from sources such as wind, sun, and biofuels, over the next three years.

Sounds a lot like the 'Green New Deal', which is great ( http://www.neweconomics.org/gen/z_sys_publicationdetail.aspx?pid=258 )

But where is the Brown plan?
Or has he run out of money, having borrowed to give to the banks?
