Obama Says U.S Was Leader In Paris Climate Deal

Published on 13 Dec 2015, 12:33
President Obama on Saturday hailed the agreement to combat climate change and carbon emissions reached by nearly 200 countries in Paris as “a tribute to strong, principled American leadership” and a vital step in ensuring the future of the planet. In a seven-minute address from the White House, the president cited the US agreement with China on carbon in 2014 as an inspiration for the Paris accord. He also repeatedly linked the deal, which was announced in France earlier in the day, to economic concerns, saying it sent “a powerful signal” that a low-carbon future and investment in clean energy were both economically viable and could create jobs.
