ROKER: Mr. President, you released the climate assessment today. This was one of your major policy issues that you wanted to tackle when you got into office. And it's been an uphill battle. Why has it taken so long to get to this point where you're sounding this urgency?OBAMA: Well I tell you, we've been sounding this urgency for the last 5 years. You've seen some resistance from Congress. Part of the reason for putting forward this assessment — which involved hundreds of people, experts, businesses, not for profits, and local communities sharing their experience — is — we want to emphasize to the public, this is not some distant problem of the future. This is a problem that is affecting Americans right now. Whether it means increased flooding, greater vulnerability to drought, more severe wildfires — all these things are having an impact on Americans as we speak.
