ABSTRACT
The article discusses the stance of U.S. President Barack Obama in addressing climate change and his decision on the much-debated Keystone XL pipeline. It notes that pipeline will promote coal-fired power plants, one of the biggest sources of carbon emissions. It adds that many doubted whether Obama will make a bold action to mitigate the other big source of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the emissions from power plants after his move of toughening automobile fuel-economy standards.
