Greenifying: The Presidency

April 8, 2011

Have you ever listened to the President's weekly speeches?  I listen to them every weekend and I want to pass along a few words to you: sustainable, alternative energy, environmentally responsible and stewardship. 

These speeches are a long-standing tradition dating back to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who delivered his weekly address via radio to a weary and tired nation and called them "fireside chats."  The country was troubled and economically depressed.  Roosevelt comforted the people by speaking to them. 

The White House speeches fell silent for awhile, but President Ronald Reagan revived it to tradition status once again and President George W. Bush moved it to the Internet with podcasts.  President Obama began putting out his speeches early, during the transitional period immediately after he was elected and through his inauguration to the present. (Over the years, the opposing political party has added their own weekly "response" speeches which are equally welcome.) 

In these speeches, you can hear the substance of what the President who speaks cares about and is committed to.   And whether you favor Mr. Obama or his political opponents, listening to these speeches, you can't help but be impressed with the man's commitment to environmental issues.   

On a weekly basis, he talks about the need to find alternative energy sources, to cut America's dependence on foreign oil and to find answers to both economic, business and environmental problems through American ingenuity.  He repeatedly says he believes that creativity and ability will find new paths and develop new solutions to any issues.  It's also a tradition of U.S. presidents to believe in Americans and American know-how.  It's good to see that tradition is changing, evolving and becoming a little greener.
