WASHINGTON, June 22 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Saturday that he will outline a climate change plan next Tuesday centered around reducing pollution from carbon emissions.

"This Tuesday, I'll lay out my vision for where I believe we need to go - a national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change, and lead global efforts to fight it," he said in a White House video.
