Climate change debate continues to heat up

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) - The White House is rejecting assertions that a new climate change report is a scare tactic.  On NBC's "Today" show this morning, President Obama warned the public of what climate change could do, predicting bigger problems, more risk of economic impact and extreme weather events that can result in people losing their lives or losing their properties or businesses. Some Republicans suggest the report is alarmist, a ploy to help pass a national energy tax and enact burdensome new regulations on industry.

The national climate assessment says climate change is happening and warns about an increase in extreme weather events, fires, floods and drought.  Absent action by Congress, White House spokesman Jay Carney has made it clear that President Obama will continue to take executive actions to deal with the effects of climate change.
