Obama On Climate Change: "We Don't Have Time For A Meeting Of The Flat Earth Society"

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've got to move beyond partisan politics on this issue. I want to be clear -- I am willing to work with anybody --- Republicans, Democrats, independents, libertarians, greens --- anybody -- to combat this threat on behalf of our kids. I am open to all sorts of new ideas, maybe better ideas, to make sure that we deal with climate change in a way that promotes jobs and growth.

Nobody has a monopoly on what is a very hard problem, but I don't have much patience for anyone who denies that this challenge is real. We don't have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society. Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it's not going to protect you from the coming storm. And ultimately, we will be judged as a people, and as a society, and as a country on where we go from here.
