Hopefully you had a chance to watch President Obama present his much anticipated Climate Action Plan at Georgetown University. If not, you can watch it HERE. The President’s detailed plan (21 pages) sets forth, among other things, a proposal for new carbon standards on power plants which would cut carbon pollution that causes climate change and threatens public health.
There were quite a few encouraging steps mentioned in the President’s plan.
I walked away from his speech with two important realizations:
- The issue of climate change crosses party lines. Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican or a member of any other party- climate change affects us all.
- President Obama’s Climate Action Plan is only the first step. There’s much more needed. We must all continue to work together to effectuate change.
It’s always interesting after something so monumental is shared to talk with others about their perspective. I had a chance to connect with a few passionate moms who were willing to share their reaction to the President’s plan. Please hop on over to Moms Clean Air Force to see what they had to say.
Now it’s your turn. I would love to hear your thoughts on President Obama’s Climate Action Plan!
