Obama tells young reporters: Climate change a top challenge for young people By Andrew Restuccia - 08/30/11 01:21 PM ET

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing young people, President Obama said in a recent interview with young reporters from Scholastic News.

“Another big challenge that your generation is going to face is the environmental challenge,” Obama said in an interview with Scholastic News Press Corp. that was conducted in July but posted online this month.

“Although we’ve made big improvements over the last 20 or 30 years in making our air clean and our water clean, there are some big challenges around climate change.”

Obama said climate change is caused by “pollution that we’re sending up into the air, the carbon that we’re releasing."

The president's comments come as Republican presidential candidates, including Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), are questioning climate science on the campaign trail.

The vast majority of the world's scientists say climate change is occurring and is caused in large part by human activity.

Climate change could result in more hurricanes in Florida or drought in other areas of the country, Obama said.

“So we’ve got to get started trying to deal with this issue and we’ve got to make sure that your generation finds better ways to use energy more efficiently so we’re not sending out as much pollution into the air,” Obama said. “So that’s going to be something that we’re really going to have to focus on.”

The Obama administration has made energy and environmental policy a major focus of his agenda in recent months. The Environmental Protection Agency, for example, is moving forward with a series of regulations aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions blamed for climate change.

Republicans and some centrist Democrats oppose the administration’s efforts, pushing legislation to limit or outright block major EPA air regulations.

Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference."

It's all about U.N. AGENDA 21. Don't be misled into thinking Obama is ignorant. He's a mover in the Marxist agenda.

No, Barry, the wannabe commie pinko government of the usa one of their greatest challenges.

Trying to learn something in your gubment brain washing schools is one of their biggest challenges.

Climate change has been shown by CERN to be caused by the impact of the sun’s magnetic field on cosmic rays. See the following link:

“Climate change a top challenge for young people...”

Indeed, the hugely destructive Global Warming lie and its much larger, abjectly retarded, buck-toothed cousin, “Environmentalism”, have put these kids in a gigantic fiscal hole, they will have to deal with their entire lives.

Name them and site their proof.

I think it’s bad to lie to people.

I think it’s really bad to lie to young people.

I think it’s bad to be such a dope.

I think it’s bad to be such a dope and the pResident of… anything, much less a country.

I think it’s bad to tell kids that Carbon, a proud member of the Periodic Table and essential for life on Earth, is a ‘pollutant.’

I think it’s bad for any human to be so woefully un- and mis-informed and have the hubris to think you’re Mr. Know-It-All.

It was 1,078 days since a hurricane came ashore in the USA before Irene arrived (IF she was a hurricane, but I digress). So, it’s bad to tell kids ‘we might get more hurricanes’ or drought as if they never happened before.

It’s bad to be so mind-numbingly stupid.

It’s bad to, individually, do more damage to those kids and their future than any drought or hurricane could do.

A supermassive black hole could float effortlessly on the dense matter that lies inside 0bama’s skull.

I say we start by grounding both Obamas from their use of govt aircraft and that we repossess the "bus tour" vehicles

Obama said climate change is caused by “pollution that we’re sending up into the air, the carbon that we’re releasing."

Carbon coming out of his lungs allowed him to form those stupid words, and with every breath the little chillrun exhaled while listening, they "polluted" too.

Calling carbon a pollutant is like calling oxygen or water a pollutant. Absurd on its face.

I agree with the president.

Over the next few years ‘reporters’ are going to have to work EXTRA hard if they want to keep up the charade.

It takes a certain skill to be wrong every time you open your mouth! Random chance would dictate that you get it right every now and then. The man is a perfect idiot!

The biggest for these children will be the effects of obesity and the healthcare they WON"T be getting due to Obamacare.

Yes it will be very hard as Obama has a (bad) record to run on and blaming Bush will not satisfy the "swing voters' this time.

It will be intering to see if these ‘reporters’ value their reputations as journalist(cough, cough) and save their jobs or continue as shills for the Democrats and save Obama's job

He should admit that envirowackos fu**ed up. Instead of heading into a new ice age we are now turning the Earth into a fireball.
