President Obama in Copenhagen. The full speech.
65% of Americans say Climate Change is a problem.

From Newsweek: “No U.S. president has ever squarely confronted the U.S.’s impact on global climate, currently responsible for about a quarter of the world’s emissions.”
“President Barack Obama has arrived in Copenhagen for the U.N. Climate summit, but it appears that a deal will not happen. Talks between developed and developing countries continue to be at an impasse. (Dec. 18)” ~ AP
