In a speech President Barack Obama gave at the Conference on Global Leadership in the Arctic in Alaska, he called for the U.S. and other Arctic nations to take action on climate change.
"We´re not moving fast enough," he said. "On this issue — of all issues — there is such a thing as being too late. And that moment is almost upon us," he further explained.
Obama is currently on a three-day Alaska trip. The next few days he will visit Seward, hike to Exit Glacier with reality TV host Bear Gryllis and visit the villages of Dillingham and Kotzebue.
