As people were being murdered, Obama talked gun control, basketball and climate change.
During the interview with Norah O’Donnell, Obama responded to a question as to how he would get Congress to go along with his pledge of $3 billion to climate change.
His response was that if India develops coal then in the next 20 or 30 years, South Florida will be gone. Earlier this week, he said fish are swimming in the streets of Miami.
“Well, keep in mind, these are pledges over a number of years. And this is in our interest. [indecipherable] take a country like India, that’s got over a billion people. If they are — to develop using, let’s say, coal as their main way of generating electricity, with a billion people, three times as — four times as many people as the United States, over the next 20 to 30 years, you know, you’re looking at an amount of carbon that would mean South Florida is gone. (Obama laughed at that point) Because the oceans would have risen too high. You can’t build a border wall when it comes to carbon emissions, or global temperatures, or the oceans. And so, we’ve got to make sure that people have incentives to work with us.”
O’Donnell asked, “How much of your legacy do you want to be about climate change?”
He indicated it is his legacy to his family and he feels pretty good about that.
