Change is coming on the issue of climate change.
In President Obama’s second inaugural speech, he promised that he will do more regarding the issue of climate change. Climate change is a lasting disruption of weather patterns caused by types of pollution such as carbon monoxide released from fossil fuels.
In Jacksonville and other coastal areas, the sea level is rising. Ice from the glaciers melting causes the levels to become higher than usual. Way higher than usual!It’s an issue we as a nation are facing, epically for the upcoming generation. Obama said “ I refuse
to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that’s beyond fixing.” From this step
forward, he plans on keeping his word and taking action to this issue.
“As a president, as a father, as an American, I’m here to say we need to act.” Obama stood tall as
he spoke to an audience at Georgetown University as he talked about his plans on how we’re facing the issue of climate change. He plans on taking immediate action by taking care of the controls over the existing and new power plants that produce carbon dioxide.
Obama listed the United States as a leading country that will help in the advances and solutions on what we can do to help clean and clear our earth and prevent more damage from happening. Challenges Obama will face is limits on power plants will be faced in court and as well as the process of carrying out the plan itself.We could all help in the change by doing the simplest things such as limiting the use of our resources. Later we will all be thankful for trying to contribute to stopping the madness we’re all facing.
Together we can all help and support in the change on climate change.
