Obama Takes in National Parks Before Talk on Carbon Emissions

"U.S. President Barack Obama is taking his family to two national parks this weekend on a working vacation where he will spend some time with his teenaged daughters while making the case for more spending on conservation and curbing climate change," reports Roberta Rampton in Rueters.

... "The president will help celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service, and he is also expected to talk about his plan to reduce climate-changing carbon emissions. He sees this as part of the legacy of his time in office."

This is positive.

Yet, does the lack of public urgency meet the scope of the threat, the predictable consequences associated with carbon emissions?

"Research has also indicated that, without drastic action, some regions may reach temperatures that could make them uninhabitable," notes Tim Radford this morning.

Not could, rather will make regions uninhabitable.
