    In addition to the initiatives listed by nxmassa88, Obama has made several steps towards helping the environment during his presidency thus far. He has proposed development for projects who focus on renewable energy, using natural elements like wind and waves to produce electricity. He has also opened communicate with the UN and foreign nations about protecting the Antarctic and addressing climate change, which had been closed off by previous presidents. This allows the US to contribute in discussion and action to lower green house emissions and slow down the rate of global warming.
