Africa, we're all gonna have ta work together, to find ways in which collectively we reduce carbon, but we make sure that there's some differentiation's so that country's that are very wealthy, uh, are expected t'do more and country's that are still developing, you know obviously they shouldn't be resigned to poverty simply because uh, ya know, the west and Europe and, and America got there first. That wouldn't be fair, but everybody's gonna have ta do something. Everybody's gonna have ta make some important choices here and ya know, I expect that it's gonna be your generation that helps lead this, because if we don't, it's gonna be your generation that suffers the most. Um, ultimately if you think about all the youth that everybody's mentioned here in Africa if everybody's raising living standards to the point where everybody's got a car and everybody's got air conditioning and everybody's got a big house, uh, well the planet will boil over. Unless we find new ways of producing energy.I'm guessing the teleprompters weren't working right. This is coming from the guy that is spending $100m to take his extended family on an 'Embarass the US' vacation tour w/ multiple (air conditioned ) aircraft, dozens of gas guzzling cars, and hundreds of people that will stay in big houses and hotels. All the while he's doing everything he can spend to reduce energy production in the US.
