President Obama to Make Climate Change Speech from Georgetown University

June 22, 2013 – President Barack Obama will lay out his vision for the steps he believes the country needs to take to address the effects of climate change and fight it on Tuesday at 1:35 p.m. at Georgetown.

He will speak from the same university building the nation’s first president spoke from in 1797.

Old North, which served as Georgetown’s main building from 1795 until the completion of Healy Hall, has received 13 United States presidents.

The speech will be webcast live on
