President Obama used his U.N. General Assembly speech Wednesday to tackle a lot of things. He covered the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the AIDS crisis, and even the global economy. But he also made sure to cover one other issue near and dear to his heart -- climate change.
Here's what he said (according to his prepared remarks):

Together, we must continue our work to build on the progress made in Copenhagen and Cancun, so that all of the major economies here today follow through on the commitments that were made. Together, we must work to transform the energy that powers are economies, and support others as they move down that path. That is what our commitment to the next generation demands.

The comments come as Former President Clinton said this week that the green movement is strapped for cash.
