ABSTRACT
The author reflects on a climate change plan of the U.S. President, Barack Obama, on limiting carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. He mentions that the President has proposed several plans including reduction of carbon pollution from coal power plants, supporting and funding renewable energy and raise fuel standards for heavy duty trucks. He criticizes the climate change plan as it relies on fossil fuels which results in further concentration of carbon in the atmosphere.
