When and Where Words are Important..

December 11, 2009

In his Nobel acceptance speech no less, President Obama was well heard to respond to several distinct and important words which are CLEARLY contained by capitals herein. Thusly:

REDD — Reducing Emissions from DEFORESTATION and Forest DEGRADATION. “I am very impressed with the model that has been built between Norway and Brazil that allows for effective monitoring and ensures that we are making progress in avoiding deforestation of the Amazon.” Obama said. “It’s probably the most cost-effective way for us to address the issue of climate change.” Developing a mechanism for REDD programs worldwide is one of the key goals of the Copenhagen climate summit.
