• Obama: Climate Change Summit A ‘Powerful Rebuke’ To Terrorists

    President Obama declared Tuesday that next week’s climate change summit in Paris will show Islamic State terrorists that they cannot win.

    “Next week, I will be joining President Hollande and world leaders in Paris for the global climate conference,” Obama said at a White House news conference alongside French President Francois Hollande.

    “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be, when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children,” he added.

    Hollande also said that holding the conference is a good sign in the fight against the Islamic State.

    “I think there cannot be any better symbol or response but to hold the conference in Paris … with some 150 heads of state and government,” Hollande said at the news conference.

    Islamic terrorists killed 130 and wounded more than 300 on Nov. 13 in a coordinated series of attacks.

    Obama, who has been completely absent from the world stage following the Paris terror attacks, has been criticized for his insistence that climate change is a greater threat to national security than terrorism.
