'We Need to Act': Transcript of Obama's Climate Change Speech

Transcript of President Barack Obama's speech at Georgetown University announcing his new climate-change policy:

On Christmas Eve, 1968, the astronauts of Apollo 8 did a live broadcast from lunar orbit. So Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, William Anders -- the first humans to orbit the moon -- described what they saw, and they read Scripture from the Book of Genesis to the rest of us back here. And later that night, they took a photo that would change the way we see and think about our world.
