President Obama seeks to illustrate the climate change issue Tuesday in a unique way: By speaking with local television weather people.

As the government issues a major report on climate change, Obama conducts interviews with meteorologists from New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, and Columbia, S.C.

The event -- dubbed "Weather from the White House" -- comes the same day as release of the National Climate Assessment, which details the potential dangers of global warming.

Republicans say that Democratic plans to address climate change would involve higher taxes and increased government regulation.

Don Stewart, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said "the president's party has controlled the Senate during his entire administration," but there has been no real effort "to move global warming legislation."

Also on Obama's schedule Tuesday: A meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry.
