The President outlined some very exciting improvements to current environmental policies in the State of the Union address last night. What a great platform to demand change. And if the parties can’t come to common ground to implement the necessary policies then the White House has promised to act on it’s own accord. How exciting!

“If Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will,” Obama said. “I will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”
