President Barack Obama said the Paris Climate Change Conference Monday in Paris was an “act of defiance” against terrorism carried out by the Islamic State in Europe and around the world.
Obama also echoed liberals of the past when he claimed the talks beginning on Monday at the Paris Climate Change Conference are the world’s last best chance to stop climate change.
“There is such a thing as being too late,” Obama said. “I come here personally as the leader of world’s biggest economy and second biggest emitter to say that America not only acknowledges its role in climate change but embraces doing something about it. One of the enemies we will be fighting at this conference is cynicism. The notion we can’t do anything about climate change.”
