"We are the first generation to feel the impacts of climate change, and the last generation to
be able to do something about it," Mr Obama said. He likened the plan to taking 166 million cars
off the road in terms of environmental impact. He called taking a stand against climate change a
"moral obligation".
Mr Obama brushed off the notion that the plan is a "War on Coal" that will kill jobs and said
he is reinvesting in areas of the US known as "coal country".
Text = coal country

"Scaremonging" tactics will not work to stop the proposal, he said.
"If we don’t do it nobody will. America leads the way forward... that’s what this plan is about.
This is our moment to get something right and get something right for our kids," he said.
