Obama: ‘The Planet Will Boil Over’ If Africans Are Allowed Cars and Air Conditioning Obama: Video

“Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over — unless we find new ways of producing energy,” Obama said.

The president made the comments while speaking at the University of Johannesburg-Soweto on Saturday, one day before announcing his “Power Africa” initiative for a “sustainable” African energy strategy.
