    THE PRESIDENT TO COME BACK TO CLIMATE CHANGE

    Next up for Obama: Major effort on climate change

    June 19, 2013 (CBS News)

    “President Barack Obama is planning a major push using executive powers to tackle the pollution blamed for global warming in an effort to make good on promises he made at the start of his second term…[Senior energy and climate adviser Heather Zichal] said the plan would boost energy efficiency of appliances and buildings, expand renewable energy and use the Environmental Protection Agency's authority under the Clean Air Act to regulate heat-trapping pollution from coal-fired power plants…

    “…[N]one of the proposals would require new funding or action from Congress…The plan, with details expected to be revealed in coming weeks, comes as Obama has been under increasing pressure from environmental groups and lawmakers from states harmed by Superstorm Sandy…Several major environmental groups and states have threatened to sue the administration to force cuts to power plant emissions…”

    “It was unclear whether the White House's plans would include controls on existing power plants…But since the administration has already proposed action on future power plants, the law would likely compel it to eventually tackle the remaining plants, or it would be forced to through litigation…Obama's remarks in Berlin echoed comments he made in his State of the Union and inaugural speeches this year…

    “Some environmentalists who cheered those remarks when they were made months ago…[say the President] should do more than talk about the problem…[and are] growing impatient…[because the] orchestrated and well-publicized campaign to persuade Obama to reject the Keystone XL oil pipeline, which would carry oil extracted from tar sands in western Canada to refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast, appears to be an uphill battle. Opponents call the $7 billion project a ‘carbon bomb’ that would carry ‘dirty oil’ and exacerbate global warming. But the State Department in an environmental evaluation concluded that other means of transporting the oil would be worse from a climate perspective.”
