Climate change and the environment take center stage Monday as the Obama administration rolls out a new plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions.
President Obama ends the day by boarding Air Force One for a week-long trip to Europe.
The Environmental Protection Agency's proposal would cut carbon emissions 30 percent by 2030 in an effort to reduce global warming.
Obama plans to discuss the new rules in a mid-afternoon conference call with public health groups. The American Lung Association is hosting the call.
Later, Obama leaves on an overnight flight for Warsaw, where on Tuesday and Wednesday he will help celebrate the 25th anniversary of free elections in Poland.
Obama's trip also includes stops in Brussels, Belgium, for a G-7 summit, and France, for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion that led to the liberation of Europe during World War II.
