As President Obama toured a Mumbai classroom exhibit on ecological challenges, he heard a lecture about the dangers of smoking.
The teenaged boy who delivered the lecture probably did not know that Mr. Obama is a longtime smoker.
Using an earnest delivery he told the president, "Today about 1.3 billion people all over the world smoke. And when a person smokes he exhales harmful pollutants into the air. These pollutants add to the gases and they also harm the smoker. "
The Occasional-Smoker-in-Chief did not have a direct response to the lesson, but described the overall discussion on global warming and other challenges "an example of where parents can learn from the children."
