Obama to talk climate with meteorologists

President Obama will speak about climate change on Tuesday with a number of national and local TV meteorologists across the country, according to an administration official. 

The 2014 National Climate Assessment will be released Tuesday and will be the focus of Obama’s interviews.

"Today” show weather forecaster Al Roker will be among those interviewing Obama on this year’s report, which is expected to look at the number of extreme weather events and their connection to climate change, among other data.

The Washington Post reports Tuesday’s climate lineup reflects a “reinvigorated strategy” from the administration on climate change action. 

The report is a follow up from the global climate study released in 2009 by the administration.

It was released to little fanfare, and this time around, the administration is pushing media outreach on the report.
