(Worthy News) - President Obama vowed Tuesday that the U.S. will provide leadership on global warming, then left the Paris talks and flew back to Washington to leave it to his lieutenants to try to strike a deal that he hopes will be 'legally binding' on his successor.
Even as congressional leaders balked at his plans, Mr. Obama tried to assure other world leaders that the U.S. will live up to any commitments he makes during the next two weeks of negotiations. He also predicted that the next president, even a Republican, will have to bow to the world’s wishes when it comes to climate change. [ Source ]
