Obama Visits Yosemite, Warns of Risks From Climate Change
President Obama warned that the country’s national parks are at risk from climate change while visiting Yosemite Falls with his family over the weekend.
These parks belong to all of us. This planet belongs to all of us. It’s the only one we’ve got. #ActOnClimate https://t.co/GEKhf4Pc9V— The White House (@The White House)1466276107.0
Obama criticized opponents who pay “lip service” to beauty but oppose climate action, saying, "Make no mistake. Climate change is no longer just a threat. It's already a reality.” He drove the point home, adding, “Rising temperatures could mean no more glaciers at Glacier National Park. No more Joshua trees at Joshua Tree National Park.”
