Obama At Climate Summit 2014

“There is one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent and growing threat of a changing climate.” – President Obama

“The climate is changing faster than our efforts to address it. The alarm bells keep ringing. Our citizens keep marching. We cannot pretend we do not hear them. We have to answer the call. We know what we have to do to avoid irreparable harm. We have to cut carbon pollution in our own countries to prevent the worst effects of climate change. We have to adapt to the impacts that, unfortunately, we can no longer avoid.” – President Obama addressing the UN Climate Summit 2014
