President Barack Obama told Scholastic News Kid Reporters during a TV interview that one of the "greatest challenges facing" their generation is “climate change.”

"Another big challenge that your generation is going to face is the environmental challenge,” Obama stated, after citing the economy as another big issue.

The interview was conducted by Scholastic News kid reporters as part of the new program on the “Challenges Facing America's Youth.”

Video available here.

Obama explained: “There are some big challenges around climate change. The temperature of the planet is getting warmer because of the pollution that we are sending up in the air, the carbon that we are releasing.”

He added: “That is something we are going to have to really focus on.”

Actually Mr. President, the latest peer-reviewed study claims that coal plants may be keeping the planet cooler.

Also, Co2 is not a “pollutant”; it's plant food. See: A peer-reviewed admission that 'global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008' and 'Cleaner air may make global warming worse': 'Cleaner air could increase avg. global temps by 1 degree globally and by 2-4 degrees over Europe'.

Obama also claimed that man-made global warming was “causing changing weather patterns.”

"In places like Florida you may be more vulnerable to hurricanes; in other areas we have seen more drought,” he explained.

“We have got to get started dealing with this issue, and we have to make sure your generation finds better ways to use energy more efficiently so that we are not sending out as much pollution into the air and that is something we are going to have to really focus on," Obama added.
