Obama Uses Earth Day To Visit Everglades

President Obama says the Florida Everglades illustrate the dangers posed by climate change and said the warming of the planet cannot be denied. During a trip there Wednesday, he said rising sea levels threaten South Florida aquifers and called on Congress to provide money for a land and water protection fund. He said action on climate change can no longer be delayed and can be addressed with political will.

Of course, many in the GOP-controlled Congress are simply not listening, and a battle could develop down the road when the president brokers a climate change agreement at the next United Nations summit.

ABC’s Mary Bruce joined us to discuss the event.
