World leaders Celebrate climate deal

Paris (CNN) – President Barack Obama praised a landmark climate change agreement approved Saturday in Paris, saying it could be “a turning point for the world.”

“The Paris agreement establishes the enduring framework the world needs to solve the climate crisis,” the President said, speaking from the White House. “It creates the mechanism, the architecture, for us to continually tackle this problem in an effective way.”

He praised American leadership but noted that all participating nations will have to cooperate.

“I believe this moment can be a turning point for the world,” Obama said, calling the agreement “the best chance we have to save the one planet that we’ve got.”
