Despite the fact that President Obama made Cap and Trade and other green policy plans a focal point of his early days in office — not to mention his campaign for president — the White House has quietly scrubbed from its official website many of Obama’s promises and green initiatives. I guess the era of Obama really is “change you can believe in.”
Especially interesting it the sudden disappearance of Obama’s plan to commit $150 billion on clean energy research and development.
In 2008 as Obama was preparing to take office he featured  on his “Office of the President Elect” website a pledge to spend $150 billion on energy R & D. As of today, that pledge is still there.
