Obama (with an anger translator) on climate change

This is an edited extract of a speech by President Obama given to the White House Correspondents’ Association. In it he introduces his “Anger Translator” and then it skips to his comments on climate change.

He makes a powerful statement in an amusing way. Maybe we need more people getting angry about climate change.

For non USA audiences the Anger Translator is comedian Keegan-Michael Key. You probably have heard of Bradley Cooper, the star of American Sniper, (although I confess I had to look him up) and Chuck Todd is an American journalist who hosts Meet the Press.

Both the full speech and the complete Anger Translator section are available online.
