President Barack Obama will today unveil America's first-ever climate strategy, offering a three-pronged approach that will focus on slashing domestic emissions, leading new global climate talks and seeking to mitigate the domestic impact of a changing global climate. The centerpiece of the plan will be deadlines by which the Environmental Protection Agency must write and implement rules governing emissions from existing power plants. "These steps will ... move our economy towards cleaner, more efficient forms of energy that will cut our reliance on foreign oil," the White House said in a statement.
