Greens’ “Climate Impact Lens” an Even Worse Catchphrase Than “All of the Above”

Greens’ “Climate Impact Lens” an Even Worse Catchphrase Than “All of the Above”: "Yesterday a flock of green special interests sent a letter to President Obama, asking the Commander-in-Chief to stop using the stupid shibboleth “all of the above,” and instead view all energy policy through a “climate impact lens.”

As you can probably tell by my choice of modifiers, I disdain “all of the above,” even more so than environmentalists. The reason I hate this phrase is that it fails to account for the inane. If an energy source is intermittent and expensive, then it makes no sense to require people to use it…unless you buy into dumb ideas like “all of the above.” Alas, such is our plight."

Too bad he even lied about 'all of the above', kind of like "if you like your health plan..." What's even more of a shame is those who were so enameled with the liar in chief that they actually believed everything he said & many still do.
