There’s been so much stormy weather around the White House in recent weeks that it’s no wonder that President Obama has heeded the radar and returned to the familiar, vapid region of climate change.
On Tuesday, Mr. Obama heads to Georgetown University in the nation’s capital to remind his green-minded pals, global alarmists and fierce critics alike that he has not forgotten a promise of five months ago.
“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,” the president says in a new video that is punctuated with nice piano music and outdoor imagery that Al Gore would certainly approve of.
“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,” Mr. Obama says. “This is a serious challenge – but it’s one uniquely suited to America’s strengths.”
