Obama met with young green socialists on Friday at the White House to talk junk science and push his nutty energy plan. Thousands of young green community organizers were in DC this week at the Power Shift 2011 green youth army summit.
Obama reminded the kids that grassroots organizing in communities and states will help move our nation on energy and climate.

The Politico reported:
President Barack Obama met with a dozen environmental activists at the White House Friday as his energy agenda continues to come under fire from all sides.
Obama dropped in on a meeting between White House staffers and Energy Action Coalition activists in town for the Power Shift 2011 conference — a gathering of some 10,000 people, almost entirely college students, organizing to promote clean energy and the environment.
The discussion could be seen as an attempt to head off discontent on the left over the failure to pass a comprehensive climate change bill and Obama’s embrace of offshore oil drilling, nuclear power and the use of “clean coal” technology.
Power Shift is organizing a Monday protest in front of the White House. Courtney Hight, co-director of the Energy Action Coalition and a former White House Council on Environmental Quality staffer, said the group is happy the White House and congressional Democrats were able to stop GOP attempts to block greenhouse gas regulations in the budget bill.
What a silly article. Since when did Obama embrace coal and oil production in America? Brazil? Maybe. America? No.
