With President Barack Obama's second term coming to an end, he has one major initiative left to get off the ground: combating climate change.
In a video post that has quickly gone viral on Facebook, President Obama says he is going to unveil a plan to help limit the carbon emissions from power plants, which are the "single biggest source of the harmful carbon pollution that contributes to climate change."
Obama's plan has been detailed on The White House website, and is hoping to save the average American 85 dollars a year on energy bills by 2030, prevent 90,000 asthma attacks in children, and create tens of thousands of jobs in the renewable energy job sector.
"It's changing in ways that threaten our economy, our security, and our health."
"This isn't opinion, it's fact," Obama says. "Backed up by decades of carefully collected data."
We've seen rising sea levels, hotter summers and increasingly extreme weather events.
"Over the past three decades asthma rates have more than doubled," Obama added. "As temperatures keep warming and smog gets worse, those Americans will be at even greater risk of landing the hospital."
He's addressing it now because of one major elephant in the room.
It is NOT a problem for another generation.
So on Monday, Obama's administration will release the final version of America's "clean power plant."
"For the sake of our kids, for the health and safety of all Americans, that's about to change."
"The biggest, most important step we've ever taken to combat climate change," Obama said.

"If you believe like I do that we can't condemn our kids and grandkids to a planet that's beyond fixing, then I'm asking you to share this message with your friends and family," Obama said in closing.
