2014: Kat4Obama’s Most Memorable Moments

by @Kat4Obama

****

1. China Climate Deal

 

White House Fact Sheet

 

Building on strong progress during the first six years of the Administration, today President Obama announced a new target to cut net greenhouse gas emissions 26-28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025.  At the same time, President Xi Jinping of China announced targets to peak CO2 emissions around 2030, with the intention to try to peak early, and to increase the non-fossil fuel share of all energy to around 20 percent by 2030….These actions will also inject momentum into the global climate negotiations on the road to reaching a successful new climate agreement next year in Paris.

The new U.S. goal will double the pace of carbon pollution reduction from 1.2 percent per year on average during the 2005-2020 period to 2.3-2.8 percent per year on average between 2020 and 2025.  This ambitious target is grounded in intensive analysis of cost-effective carbon pollution reductions achievable under existing law and will keep the United States on the right trajectory to achieve deep economy-wide reductions on the order of 80 percent by 2050….

The Administration’s steady efforts to reduce emissions will deliver ever-larger carbon pollution reductions, public health improvements and consumer savings over time and provide a firm foundation to meet the new U.S. target.

The joint announcement marks the first time China has agreed to peak its CO2 emissions. The United States expects that China will succeed in peaking its emissions before 2030 based on its broad economic reform program, plans to address air pollution, and implementation of President Xi’s call for an energy revolution.

2014: 99ts’ Most Memorable Moments

by 99ts

Living down under there is really one moment that outshone the rest in 2014 – the visit of PBO to Brisbane. It became memorable in many ways, some due to family events of that same weekend, he gave us calm when it was much needed – but the best of the best was PBO flying over our house. I’m sure I saw him checking it out.

AF1 magnified as best we could – it was a long way away

MarineOne flying over our house – heading to the RAAF base Amberley

Two Copters – to confuse

AF1 heading North East of us – to the Pacific and on to Hawaii

2014: Arapaho’s Most Memorable Moments

by Arapaho

My favorite moments of 2014 were those which showcased PBO in foreign settings, and how he sincerely understands the importance of youth in this world and in this country.

All favorite moments are underscored by President Obama’s undying faith and belief in that which unites us and makes us human.

2014 Themes

1) Youth Leaders

2) Foreign Relations

3) Connection to Humanity

Youth Leaders

#1 (a) This 6-minute MTV video…

…. shows the powerful results of young leaders inspiring other youth of their community. What could be more important to those under 18 than suicide prevention and education?

The white elite take for granted the experiences they carry with them from their days at summer camp — it doesn’t occur to them that less privileged youth don’t have the opportunity to meet other young people outside of their high school or church. Beginning next year, the annual Tribal Youth Leaders Conference will make such a difference in the lives of Native American communities and their children.

****

Could not be prouder or more impressed by Dahkota “Kicking Bear” Brown of Jackson CA for creating the peer-to-peer tutoring and mentoring N.E.R.D.S (Native Education Raising Dedicated Students) program when he was in the 8th grade (!)

****

Here’s the ONLY MSM article that I found that provided coverage of the historic outreach to this country’s First Americans:
