President Barack Obama recently announced his intention to use his presidential power to issue Executive Orders to combat climate change. Some applauded; others lamented. On July 4, 2013, Charles Krauthammer, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and one of the most eloquent voices of American conservatism, published his views on combating climate change in The Washington Post. In his article, entitled "Obama's global warming folly," Krauthammer reiterated his support for a global treaty to limit carbon dioxide emissions, but opposed any unilateral approach by the United States as futile. This summer has turned into a hot one for the politics of climate change.
