President Obama has taken to Twitter to announce that he will be making a major address on climate change this week on Tuesday, June 25.

The tweet links to a short video in which the President talks about  why it is important to discuss and address climate change.

“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,” said President Obama. “This Tuesday, at Georgetown University, 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,” added the President. “But it is one uniquely suited to America’s strengths. We’ll need scientists to design new fuels, 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 our citizens to do our part to preserve God’s creation for future generations. Our forests and our 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,” states the President. “So I hope you’ll share this message with your friends because this is a challenge that effects everyone. And we all have a stake in solving it together.”

The short video was paired with instrumental music and images of disasters and the beautiful American environment alike. The President managed to tie in that making a greener society would also create more jobs.

  1. After 28 years of science ONLY agreeing it COULD be a crisis and NEVER saying it *WILL be a crisis there comes a time when we ultimately must judge for ourselves if this CO2 death threat for billions of helpless children is real or not as 28 more years of “maybe” a crisis is unsustainable.
    Scientists have children so why don’t they end this debate and agree on giving a real warning of a real crisis?
    *Science has agreed climate change is real and is happening and could (nothing more) be a real crisis as not one single IPCC warning says it WILL be a crisis and not one IPCC warning is not swimming in “maybes”.
    And get up to date:
    *Occupywallstreet now does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded and corporate run carbon trading stock markets ruled by politicians.
    *Canada killed Y2Kyoto with a freely elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (a comet hit).
    *Julian Assange is of course a climate change denier.
    *Obama had not mentioned the crisis in two State of the Unions addresses.
