Skip to comments.Sources: Obama Climate Rollout May Come In July

President Barack Obama may be just a month away from releasing the second-term climate change strategy that activists and donors are waiting impatiently for, although the details and timing appear to still be in flux.
Two former Obama administration officials told POLITICO late Thursday that they have heard that Obama plans to roll out a climate strategy in July. That meshes with the timing some Democratic donors say they have heard from Obama at closed-door fundraisers in recent weeks, according to a report earlier Thursday evening.
That is what I heard as well from an informed source, one former senior administration official told POLITICO.
But some climate donors and strategists say administration officials are still hedging at the timing, and especially the details of what would be rolled out.
It seems to be a moving target in terms of what it will be and when it will be, one strategist said.
I dont think anybody has had it told explicitly that something will be out next month, but theres definitely been a lot of hinting, another climate donor and strategist said.
Among the factors the administration must weigh is how any such climate strategy which may rely heavily on EPA regulations on pollution sources like power plants would affect the prospects for the Senate confirmation of Gina McCarthy as EPA administrator. Her nomination has been held up by Senate Republicans who havent said whether they would try to stage a filibuster.
Among the most important issues are the details of the EPAs expected rollout of greenhouse gas controls for future power plants. The EPA missed its April deadline to issue the rule, and some people following the issue have speculated that the agency may be trying to rewrite the regulation to withstand the inevitable court challenge.

The dismantling of America will soon be complete.
All I can say is that I’m glad I just installed a 35-yr old dishwasher that had seen only two years of use. I can still get a load of dishes done in well under an hour.
We may find out how many yankees really WANT to live in the deep south if the average joe can’t afford much A/C.
Wonder what this’ll do to the housing market in Atlanta and all of the state of Florida.
Yep. It’s official, the nation’s gone nuts. We’ve elected a set of morons...

When all is said and done...of course they will. Expect it and with it that “0’ is doing what he said he would...we should not be shocked he's doing so...he was a snake when he ran...and that fact doesn't change because he's Pres.
The problem is not so much ‘0’ as we have precious few opposing him...and we know this.
I am glad all of these scandals have derailed the Obama socialist agenda. /sarc
Really? What’s her name? LOL!
Meh. I see this as the equivalent of Hitler in January of 1945 anouncing Germany’s budget for 1946.
Events will require a re-alignment.
Of course. He wants a sweltering 98 degree day on the Potomac for the photo op.
Perhaps the sooner the better.
Obama is in a position to anything he wants.
Who is going to stop him?
Relentless -— unless we are every bit as relentless, they will have absolute power over us before 10 more years have passed.
LIBERALS have a ready made solution to stop an impending disaster that doesn’t even exist. We just have to trust them.
I can see the logic of releasing it in July. “Fellow citizens, you can see that it’s HOT due to global warming.”
We had to use the furnace this morning to warm the place up.
