Ahead of power plant push, Obama ties climate change to health hazards

WASHINGTON, May 31 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama kicked
off a campaign to promote new restrictions on U.S. power plant
emissions on Saturday by tying the fight against climate change
with efforts to promote better health for children and the
elderly.

In his weekly radio address, Obama said the United States
had to do more to reduce carbon emissions so that children
suffering from asthma and other related ailments did not face
further problems as a result of polluted air.
