During his press conference last week, President Barack Obama affirmed his belief that climate change is real and something needs to be done to address it.
"But rather than propose a way to bridge those divides, the president seemed to punt," wrote John M. Broder in The New York Times. "He said he would be listening to experts over the next several months and then conducting an 'education process' about long-term steps to address the warming planet."
What would a short-term solution look like, and is it enough to address the issue? What will climate scientists say to the president when he sits down with them, and will any of their ideas be politically feasible?
David Orr, professor of environmental studies and politics at Oberlin College, will join The Daily Circuit Tuesday to discuss U.S. climate change policy. Kevin Trenberth, distinguished senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, will also join the discussion.
