WASHINGTON, DC — In this week’s address, the President laid out the importance of serving as good stewards of the environment and maintaining the planet for generations to come.  Since taking office the President has prioritized protecting the places that make America special.

He has repeatedly said that no challenge poses a greater threat to our future than a changing climate, which is why he’s taken bold actions at home and encouraged historic action abroad on the issue.

In his address, he encouraged Congress to reauthorize and fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund which has protected more than 5 million acres of land for more than half a century, without costing taxpayers a dime.  Republicans in Congress let the fund expire despite strong bipartisan support. And he reminded us that we all have to do our part to address climate change, promote clean energy and energy efficiency, and ensure a cleaner, more stable environment for future generations.

Noting dozens of large companies have joined Obama on several environmental initiatives.

* Cúi càng thấp thì khả năng móc được tiền từ túi kẻ khác càng cao
*Kiềm chế nó là sức mạnh, sức mạnh nó là kiềm chế. Khi người ta tát vào mặt mình phải luyện đến mức không tát lại - sức mạnh bắt đầu xuất hiện. Nó nhổ nước bọt vào mặt mình… kìm chế, lau nước bọt - siêu sức mạnh. Nó nhổ vào mặt mình… kệ mẹ, không thèm lau - sức mạnh tuyệt đối"
