Obama: Climate Deal is ‘Best Chance’ to Save the Planet

AP LogoWASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says the climate agreement reached in Paris on Saturday offers “the best chance to save the one planet we have.”

In a statement delivered from the Cabinet Room on Saturday, Obama says we can be more confident the planet is going to be in better shape for the next generation, and that the deal shows the world has the will and ability to take on “this challenge.”

Obama says no nation could solve the problem of climate change alone, and he warns that even if all the goals are met the world is only on its way to reducing carbon in the atmosphere.

He says the Paris agreement establishes an enduring framework that the world needs to tackle the problem.
