"Obama Climate Strategy Represents Piecemeal Approach"

"President Obama will invoke his executive authority Tuesday by undertaking a slew of measures aimed at curbing climate change and its impacts, from imposing the first carbon limits on existing power plants to requiring all federal projects to withstand rising seas and more intense storms."

"The laundry list of policies Obama will outline in a speech Tuesday afternoon at Georgetown University — some new, many of which build on existing programs — hint at both the opportunity and challenge the president faces when it comes to global warming.

Freed from the need to compromise with Congress, Obama can enact regulations and issue directives that will change both government and the marketplace before he leaves office. But he is embarking on a piecemeal approach that targets individual sectors of the economy, with many of the details to be sketched out in the next two years."
