President Obama Tells the BRT to See Addressing Climate Change as a Business Opportunity



Remarks by President Obama to the Business Roundtable

“… I would urge the BRT and some of you individually, as companies have already done this, view the issue of climate change … as an opportunity rather than as a problem.  Because this is coming; it’s coming generationally.  If you talk to your kids or my kids, they are much more attuned to this issue. Consumers are going to be caring about it more and more.”
