President Barack Obama to Promote Climate Change Plan in Tuesday Speech

Mon, 24 Jun 2013 06:22:48 CDT

President Barack Obama to Promote Climate Change Plan in Tuesday Speech On Tuesday, the President has announced that he will be sharing his big ideas on how to deal with Climate Change- in a White House produced video released this past Friday- President Barack Obama says he will be at Georgetown University and will lay out his vision on how America responds to Climate Change.

It's likely taxes on the rich will be a part of the plan. The video includes pictures of farmers harvesting crops and wind turbines as far as the eye can see- two of the areas that are most certainly a part of his plan.

Here's the text of the video markets made by President Obama. (You can click on play button in the video box below to see the President's video package about climate change and how he hopes to fix the issue.)

"In my inaugural address, I pledged that America would respond to the growing threat of climate change for the sake of our children and future generations.

"This Tuesday, I'll lay out my vision for where I believe we need to go a national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change, and lead global efforts to fight it.

"This is a serious challenge but it's one uniquely suited to America's strengths.

"We'll need scientists to design new fuels, and farmers to grow them.

"We'll need engineers to devise new sources of energy, and businesses to make and sell them.

"We'll need workers to build the foundation for a clean energy economy.

"And we'll need all of us, as citizens, to do our part to preserve God's creation for future generations our forests and waterways, our croplands and snowcapped peaks.

"There's no single step that can reverse the effects of climate change. But when it comes to the world we leave our children, we owe it to them to do what we can.

"So I hope you'll share this message with your friends. Because this a challenge that affects everyone and we all have a stake in solving it together.

"I hope to see you Tuesday. Thank you."
