However, Obama is the first president to propose, just recently in fact, a Climate Service which will work within the existing NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration) specifically to report on climate change data. Additionally, Obama’s ring of advisors on climate change and energy issues appears to be more robust than previous administrations,’ and Obama himself received kudos from the world community early in his administration by announcing US commitment to climate change issues.
