The Inauguration: Comments on energy please environmentalists

Excerpts:

Steve Smith, assistant regional director of the Wilderness Society, called it “marvelous” that in an inaugural address in which Obama tried to cover so many national topics, he specifically mentioned the need to turn to solar, wind and other renewable energy sources, and to respond to the threat of global warming.

“I think it makes those points very important, the fact that he pushed them (Tuesday),” Smith said.
