FILE - In this Nov. 14, 2012 file photo, protesters wearing flower costumes, display placards during a rally near the U.S. Embassy in Manila, Philippines to call on industrialized countries to act on the growing problem of climate change. Absent a magic potion or explosive economic growth, it was all but inevitable President Barack Obama would have to break some of his campaign promises to keep others, because of their incompatibility. Slowing the buildup of greenhouse gases responsible for warming the planet is one of the biggest challenges the U.S., and Obama faces. The impacts of rising global temperatures are widespread and costly: more severe storms, rising seas, species extinctions, and changes in weather patterns that will alter food production and the spread of disease.
