President to deliver remarks at Georgetown on climate change
The President has spoken at Georgetown twice before, addressing energy security on March 30, 2o11. In that speech, he called for further research in the field of alternative energy sources, and that the U.S. might cut oil imports by a third by 2020.
According to a video released by the White House, Obama plans to discuss “a national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change, and lead global efforts to fight it.” He stressed the importance of a unified country to “help preserve God’s creation for future generations. There was no comment on specific policy, although as reported by Reuters, White House energy and climate change advisor Heather Zichal said, “In the near term, we are very much focused on the power plant piece of the equation.”
