A Historic Address by President Obama at the U.N. Climate Summit

President Obama acknowledged at the United Nation's Climate Summit what no other U.S. president has said before:
"It is true that for too many years, mankind has been slow to respond to or even recognize the magnitude of the climate threat. It is true of my own country as well. We recognize that. But this is a new day."

He also acknowledged that developed countries like the United States "caused much of the damage to our climate" and "have a responsibility to lead."
