VOICE OVER SCRIPT:

FIGHTING ALLEGATIONS OF ENVIRONMENTAL NEGLECT IN HIS FIRST TERM, PRESIDENT OBAMA NOW WANTS TO DO MORE ...

(SOT: Obama's Inaugural address)

"Knowing, failure to do so would betray our children and future generations."

HURRICANES, FLOODS AND DROUGHTS HAVE PUSHED CLIMATE CHANGE BACK ONTO THE POLITICAL FRONT-BURNER.

(SOT: Al Gore, former U. S. Vice President & environmental campaigner)

"The most powerful voice is that of mother nature."

THE UN'S CLIMATE PANEL REPORTS THAT GLOBAL WARMING IS LEADING TO SUCH EXTREME WEATHER THAT NATIONS SHOULD PREPARE FOR DEADLY AND COSTLY DISASTERS.

(SOT: Al Gore, former U. S. Vice President & environmental campaigner)

"It does materially change the way people feel about the urgent challenge on cutting back on all this pollution."

WILDFIRES IN COLORADO SHOW THE DESTRUCTIVE POWER OF NATURE.

(SOT: Michael Brune, Sierra Club Executive Director)

"What we saw last year is record wildfires like we haven't seen in most of the inter mountain West. We saw a drought that gripped more than 60 percent of the entire United States. And, so most Americans recognize when they walk out, when they go hunting or camping or fishing or they are playing with their kids, that our climate is destabilizing."

NOT SO FAST, SAYS MICROSOFT FOUNDER BILL GATES.

(SOT Bill Gates, Microsoft Chairman/Cofounder)

"There actually is no connection between the weather events we've seen and climate change. So, it is ironic if that is what gets people more involved ..."

GATES SAYS THE REAL IMPACT WILL BE FELT IN 50 TO 100 YEARS _ WHAT'S NEEDED NOW IS RESEARCH ...

(SOT Bill Gates, Microsoft Chairman/Cofounder)

"That's what will give us the magic tools that every country will feel like deploying and it is close to whether we are going to get the changes in time to avoid the very negative effects."

ONE CLEAR INDICATOR OF GLOBAL WARMING _ THAWING PERMAFROST IN THE ARTIC NORTH IS RELEASING METHANE GAS.

23-TIMES MORE POWERFUL THAN CARBON DIOXIDE, SOME ALASKAN SCIENTISTS SAY METHANE IS BEING RELEASED AT A DANGEROUS RATE.

STANDING IN OBAMA'S LEGISLATIVE WAY ARE CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS.

(SOT: Representative Ed Whitfield is a Republican from Kentucky and the Chairman of the House Energy and Power subcommittee)

"Our environment is as clean as any country in the world and why should America be taking the hits all the time when other countries like China, India, these other countries are not doing their fair part? "

SEEING THE NEED TO BALANCE GROWING THE ECONOMY WITH ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS, WHITFIELD INSISTS THAT AMERICA HAS BEEN UNFAIRLY SINGLED OUT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S FIRST TEST ON CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY COULD COME SOON _ DECIDING THE FATE OF THE KEYSTONE XL OIL PIPELINE THAT WILL CARRY TAR SANDS OIL FROM ALBERTA, CANADA, TO TEXAS.
