The article reports:
President Obama is launching fresh battles over climate change with plans to curb emissions using executive powers that sidestep Congress — including controversial rules to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants.
The basic premise of the need to combat climate change is not valid. WattsUpWithThat.com posted the following graph on its website. The graph is from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration):
So why is the President making a speech about climate change today? He is hoping to take the focus off of the IRS, Benghazi, and the other scandals that have plagued his administration. President Obama does not seem to understand the concept of working with Congress to reach a compromise on proposed legislation. Hopefully, we will still have three viable branches of government by the time the Obama Administration is over.
