President Obama warned Friday that storms like Hurricane Sandy will become more frequent as climate change intensifies.
While being briefed by emergency response officials at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) headquarters, Obama urged the public to prepare now for this year's hurricane season.
"The changes were seeing in our climate means that, unfortunately, storms like Sandy could end up being more common and more devastating," Obama said.
"And thats why were also going to be doing more to deal with the dangers of carbon pollution that help to cause this climate change and global warming. And thats why were also, with the terrific help of these departments, thinking of how we can build more resilient infrastructure," he added.
The administration is preparing to unveil Obama's signature climate change regulation Monday, which will limit carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.
After leaving FEMA headquarters, Obama visited the Children's National Medical Center, according to a White House pool report.
There Obama met with children who are being treated for asthma, an illness aggravated by air pollution, a White House official said.
Obama is at the hospital to tape his weekly address, which will focus on the forthcoming carbon pollution rule.

Last year that idiot predicted a worse than usual hurricane season. It was a complete dud last year for hurricanes.
So the Nobel Peace Prize winner is also a meteorologist? Who knew?
I hope Joe Bastardi has some commentary on this in one of his upcoming programs...
Any day now ....
“Climate Change” is gonna cause a BIG Hurricane!
Any day now .....
More propaganda brilliance. Eventually, there will be a bad hurricane, (we are overdue), and because people and their insurance companies (including the US Government) are stupid enough to build flimsy/flood-prone structures along places where these storms tend to wind up, even more damage/death in the future is a virtual certainty. Therefore, - it will be “caused” by climate change.
“it’s not fear mongering when we do it”
We’re overdue? Not in NJ!
“1st qtr, 2014 U.S. economic growth was at .01% or less indicating that the economic goal of “Sustainable Development/Agenda 21” as adopted by the U.S. has largely been met. This also fulfills the machiavellian wish of Maurice Strong, UN Chairman of UNCED aka The Rio Earth Summit where in 1992 he articulated the veiled intentions of the “Plan for the 21st Century- Sustainable Development/Agenda 21” by saying this in regard to our “unsustainable” high consumption of natural resources which is, according to them destroying the Earth; “...isn’t it our responsibility to bring about the collapse of the industrialized countries?” Now, to become truly as “Sustainable” as Bangladesh is, more vital work is quickly needed to further collapse and “Degrow” the economy. This will be accomplished by more draconian restrictions on business and energy use which will be mandated by arbitrary regulations spawned by the bogus hype to save the planet from the dread effects of antropogenic Global Warming aka Climate Change aka Climate Disruption.
3100+ days since a Cat 3 hurricane makes landfall on a US coast.
THERE WERE NO MAJOR HURRICANES IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC BASIN FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1994...AND THE NUMBER OF HURRICANES THIS YEAR WAS THE LOWEST SINCE 1982.
That's what the NOAA has to say about the 2013 hurricane season.
Fecal Federal Fear-Mongering,
Is needed to distract the majority view,
That Obama is a traitorous criminal,
And using a change in Weather,
Is what Obama’s speechwriters chose to pursue.
Will it be enough distraction,
Or are Earthquakes needed too?
Somewhere the Ocean must be rising?
Some “Women and children” wronged somewhere!?
Hurry and scurry, lie and deny!
THE TRUTH is nearly out!
B. Hussein is losing his Emperor’s clothes!
It had to happen, since he always exposed his behind.
Basketball brackets, Nobel Peace Prizes, concussions, beer summits, storms, “sons” — is there anything he CAN’T do??? I am so amazed at his talents.
...beat that Sandy horse just one more time...
