President Barack Obama says "the world is at a turning point" and it's up to this generation to address global warming. "I believe in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that there is such a thing as being too late. And when it comes to climate change that hour is almost upon us." If nothing is done, he said, no nation will be immune from the consequences, be them rich or poor.
