  • (music)

  • The President: Our climate is changing.

  • It's changing in ways that threaten our economy,

  • our security, and our health.

  • This isn't opinion; it's fact, backed up by

  • decades of carefully collected data and

  • overwhelming scientific consensus.

  • And it has serious implications for the

  • way that we live now.

  • We can see it and we can feel it: hotter summers;

  • rising sea levels; extreme weather events like stronger

  • storms, deeper droughts, and longer wildfire seasons.

  • All disasters that are becoming more frequent,

  • more expensive, and more dangerous.

  • Our own families experience it too.

  • Over the past three decades, asthma rates

  • have more than doubled.

  • And as temperatures keep warming, and smog gets

  • worse, those Americans will be at even greater risk of

  • landing in the hospital.

  • Climate change is not a problem for another generation.

  • Not anymore.

  • That's why, on Monday, my administration will release

  • the final version of America's Clean Power Plan:

  • the biggest, most important step we've ever taken to

  • combat climate change.

  • Power plants are the single biggest source of the

  • harmful carbon pollution that contributes

  • to climate change.

  • But until now there have been no federal limits

  • to the amount of that pollution those plants

  • can dump into the air.

  • Think about that.

  • We limit the amount of toxic chemicals, like mercury and

  • sulphur and arsenic, in our air and water,

  • and we're better off for it.

  • But existing power plants can still dump unlimited

  • amounts of harmful carbon pollution into

  • the air we breathe.

  • For the sake of our kids, for the health and safety

  • of all Americans, that's about to change.

  • We've been working with states and power companies

  • to make sure they've got the flexibility they need to cut

  • this pollution, all the while lowering energy bills,

  • ensuring reliable service, and paving the way for new

  • job-creating innovations that help America

  • lead the world forward.

  • If you believe, like I do, that we can't condemn our

  • kids and grandkids to a planet that's beyond fixing,

  • then I'm asking you to share this message with your

  • friends and family.

  • Push your own communities to adopt smarter,

  • more sustainable practices.

  • Remind everyone who represents you that

  • protecting the world we leave to our children

  • is a prerequisite for your vote.

  • Join us.

  • We can do this.

  • It's time for America and the world to act

  • on climate change.
