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.
