Obama: “Climate change is a fact!”

From President Obama’s latest State of the Union Address:

“[W]e have to act with more urgency,” Obama said, “because a changing climate is already harming western communities struggling with drought, and coastal cities dealing with floods.”

“The shift to a cleaner energy economy won’t happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way,” he continued, before laying down the gauntlet: “But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact. And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did.”
