Obama Outlines Plans to Combat Climate Change

Hosted by

In a speech much awaited — by environmentalists and the energy industry — President Obama today outlined America's first comprehensive strategy for coping with climate change. The White House doesn't expect that Congress will act on climate change so he laid out his own "action agenda" for the Executive branch, focusing on limits for coal-fired power plants.
