Obama to Unveil Plan to Tackle Climate Change

President Obama "will lay out a multi-pronged plan to tackle climate change in a speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, stressing the 'moral obligation' he feels to start advancing policies that can rein in greenhouse-gas emissions in the U.S. and overseas in the absence of legislation from Congress," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"The most anticipated part of the climate plan he will unveil will be a push for tougher emissions standards for new and existing power plants. The plan will also include more federal support for fossil-fuel development, energy efficiency, breaking down trade barriers in clean-energy products and boosting bilateral climate cooperation with major economies such as China, India and Brazil. In all, it will outline steps to reduce carbon emissions both at home and overseas."

Wonk Wire: Even the most ambitious climate plan may not be enough.
