President Barack Obama will combine two crucial tenets of his environmental legacy during a whirlwind 10-day trip beginning Wednesday.
The conservation element of that legacy will be capped by a dazzling photo op at the far-flung Midway Islands, a wildlife refuge in the Pacific Ocean which last week Obama expanded to become the largest marine protected area in the world.
The climate change portion could culminate before the G20 meeting in Hangzhou with ratification by the United States and China of the landmark Paris Climate Agreement.
The two stops on the trip are another way to show the link between conservation and climate change — a critical part of the president’s environmental push.
