After that, Obama said long-term solutions need to be put into place so future generations do not have fear the “destructive power of a warming planet,” The Associated Press reported. He acknowledged that more Americans may be focused on improving the economy and creating more jobs than are concerned with climate change, but said climate change would not take precedence over any other critical issues currently facing the nation.
