1. STATE OF THE UNION
Obama may take 30,000-foot view of climate tomorrow
President Obama may not detail the regulations he plans to implement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in tomorrow's State of the Union address. But to a certain extent, it doesn't matter how specific the president gets in his annual address to Congress. The president already made confronting the visible effects of rising temperatures and extreme weather the most substantial focus of his inaugural address, and federal agencies have plenty of authority to implement tough new climate change regulations without Congress having to act.
