President Clinton discusses the Administration's climate change initiatives
President Clinton discusses the Administration's climate change initiatives prior to taping his Earth Day 2000 radio address.

"The greatest environmental challenge of the new century is global warming…If we fail to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, deadly heat waves and droughts will become more frequent, coastal areas will flood, and economies will be disrupted. That is going to happen, unless we act. Many people…still believe you cannot cut greenhouse gas emissions without slowing economic growth. In the Industrial Age that may well have been true. But in this digital economy, it is not true anymore. New technologies make it possible to cut harmful emissions and provide even more growth."

-- President Bill Clinton, State of the Union Address, January 27, 2000
