    WHY THE PRESIDENT IS A CLIMATE HERO

    How Obama picked up the pieces on climate change

    Devin Henry, Timothy Cama, Jordan Fabian, February 10, 2016 (The Hill)

    “…[After President Obama’s hopes for a historic cap-and-trade bill died in the Senate, he turned to] a backup plan in the works that would end up defining much of his second term…That plan was to use the president’s regulatory authority under the Clean Air Act to limit carbon dioxide from power plants, something Obama’s opponents say is so novel it’s illegal…Those power plant rules, which the administration is now rushing to complete, became leverage in Obama’s successful effort to finish an international climate deal in Paris late last year — a part of his legacy years in the making...

    "...[This is] not a completed story…[The Supreme Court just blocked] the rules from taking effect while lawsuits move forward. And they could be quickly overturned if a Republican wins the White House…Either way, Obama’s allies say a president determined to combat climate change — even as he was focused on the recession and his signature healthcare law — will have no regrets…The Clean Power Plan, along with many of Obama’s other executive actions, faces a string of legal challenges from states and deep-pocketed interest groups. But Obama and the EPA won their first victory in that fight in January, when a court panel rejected a call to temporarily suspend the rule…

    "...[President Obama] never doubted the legality or the impact of the rule…[and he has never wavered in his] personal commitment to confronting climate change…” click here for more
