Presidential environmentalism

Got this from an article by Mark LeVine.
The quote comes from War in Context:

"Let's suppose that the next president decides he's going to launch
an initiative to protect America from global warming. If the war on
terrorism provides a paradigm, the solution should be obvious: As
the icecaps melt, build an ocean barrier around every coastal city
in America; focus public awareness on the effects but avoid talking
about the causes; above all, reassure the nation that the only way
to be safe is to be strong. Meanwhile, enjoy the beach but don't
forget the sunscreen."
