President-Elect Obama certainly does seem committed to changing the American government and holding true to his promises of changing the way politics are done in Washington. And his weekly address is just one example of the coming changes.

For the first time in history, the weekly Democratic address has been released as a web video on YouTube. Obama’s dynamic Presidential campaign relied heavily on the internet to both galvanize younger voters and to fundraise and was an unprecedented success in both areas.

The first web-cast took place today (Saturday November 15, 2008) and addressed the global economic crisis. Obama mentioned the environment with:

Even as we dig ourselves out of this recession, we must also recognize that out of this economic crisis comes an opportunity to create new jobs, strengthen our middle class, and keep our economy competitive in the 21st century. That starts with the kinds of long-term investments that we've neglected for too long. That means putting two million Americans to work rebuilding our crumbling roads, bridges, and schools. It means investing $150 billion to build an American green energy economy that will create five million new jobs, while freeing our nation from the tyranny of foreign oil, and saving our planet for our children.
