President Barack Obama wipes sweat off his face as he unveils his plan on climate change June 25, 2013 at Georgetown University.

Last week, President Obama unveiled his plan to impose new regulations on power plants, establish conditions for approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline and include climate change impacts in all important government decisions.
