Obama's speech was a massive disappointment. He had nothing to offer. The world does not need another preacher man, Mr President. Those of us who have been working on the front line for years, know what needs to be done. At least we now know that Copenhagen will be Nopenhagen. America is trapped in its out of date mindset and lifestyle. No more words. We need action.

I trust the PRESIDENT Obama as it is matter of time to make his words a really action.
