With California’s drought, the rising seas, and extreme storms, climate change is not just a prediction anymore, it’s a certainty. These are effects we are already living with and 2015 is on set to be the hottest year on record. Climate change is here.

This year, signaling a new sense of urgency, Obama kicked off the talks with a speech in Paris. “I come here personally as the leader of the world’s biggest economy and second biggest emitter,” the President stated, “to say that America not only acknowledges its role in climate change but embraces doing something about it.”
