US initiative for climate change - Better late then never

US President Barrack Obama's recent announcement unveiling ambitious plan to combat climate change  
(Obama Takes a Crucial Step on Climate Change ) under which he has proposed  to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 32 percent compared to 2005 levels over the next 15 years has drawn the attention of both the supporters of climate change and critics .Apart from world wide praises and compliments  the move has also been termed as  "catastrophic," and  "irresponsible and over-reaching"  by fellow Americans and politicians . Being one of the richest countries and having access to all kinds of resources at their fingertips,the Americans need to put equal efforts by changing  their attitude towards consumerism and life style which has made them one of the top CO2 emitters after China.
