オバマ氏自身の温暖化対応

Thank you NYTimesとしかいえませんね。NYTimesの記事の冒頭より:http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/29/us/politics/29whitehouse.html?_r=1

The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.

You call this bad weather? President Barack Obama, steeled by many snowy Chicago winters, expressed disbelief Wednesday when his daughters woke up to find that their classes had been canceled for the day.

Schools in Washington and the surrounding suburbs either opened late or scrapped all their classes because of icy conditions.

"Can I make a comment that is unrelated to the economy very quickly?" the new president told reporters at a gathering with business leaders. "And it has to do with Washington. My children’s school was canceled today. Because of, what? Some ice?"

The president said he wasn’t the only one who was incredulous.

"As my children pointed out, in Chicago, school is never canceled," Obama said to laughter. "In fact, my 7-year-old pointed out that you’d go outside for recess. You wouldn’t even stay indoors. So, I don’t know. We’re going to have to try to apply some flinty Chicago toughness."

私はワシントンDCに6年住んだ経験がある。ワシントンは全く雪と氷に対してのインフラが無い。チェーンを持った車はほとんどなく、市がは塩を蒔く器具を備えたトラックも無い。シカゴと比べること自体がおかしい。

ちなみに、民主党党大会で彼はこう語った:http://www.demconvention.com/barack-obama/

A nation of whiners?  Tell that to the proud auto workers at a Michigan
plant who, after they found out it was closing, kept showing up every
day and working as hard as ever, because they knew there were people
who counted on the brakes that they made.  Tell that to the military
families who shoulder their burdens silently as they watch their loved
ones leave for their third or fourth or fifth tour of duty.  These are
not whiners.  They work hard and give back and keep going without
complaint.  These are the Americans that I know.

アメリカを奮い立たせる言葉だが、自分は温暖化対応を気にせず、セーター、ジャケットを着なくても良い、蘭が生い茂っても可笑しくない室温で仕事をするらしい。

より平等なブタになったオバマ氏でしょうか?
