“We owe it to our kids to do something about climate change. Share this video and join me Tuesday … –bo,” the tweet reads.
The tweet included a link to a short video, in which Obama touts the impending initiative, but the president offered no details on the plan’s goals, costs or spending.
“This Tuesday, I’ll lay out my vision for where I believe we need to go — a national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change and lead global efforts to fight it,” Obama said in the video.
The Washington Post reported that the plan will include promise regulations to force down carbon-dioxide emissions from power plants. Those rules likely will drive up the cost of electricity.
