  •  Very interesting. Clearly hyping the speech (2+ / 0-)

    in a way that I don't remember the Obama administration doing before on policy speeches. First the on-the-record quotes from his top environmental aide in the NYT on Wednesday, and now this.

    If he's going to announce some very concrete and positive steps that will address climate change then I can understand the build-up. I hope that is exactly what he does.

    Normally you don't promote a speech like this if you expect it to disappoint your supporters...and President Obama knows he has a very tough sell with climate change activists.

    The groundwork is bring laid. I hope he follows through with a smart, visionary speech about what we can and will do.
