President Obama pledges to resume an "urgent priority" on climate change next year - but this time round the Democrats have new strategy.

After the failure of an umbrella carbon policy attempt two years ago, the Democrats plan on pushing through climate policies in chunks. Obama was not specific about the "chunks" of policies he would pursue, we can most likely expect bite-size bills on electric cars, natural gas trucks and utility carbon caps.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Obama reiterated the importance of an energy policy that addresses the nation's overreliance on fossil fuels.

When it comes to raising awareness on the environment, no one does it better than Planet Green. The network recently won two News and Documentary Emmy awards for their efforts.
