Barack Obama wins the US presidency for a second term - what will this mean for the climate?

In his victory speech last night, Obama finally mentioned climate change:

“We want our children to live in an America that isn’t burdened by debt, that isn’t weakened up by inequality, that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”

Shortly after Obama’s victory was announced Bill McKibben, from, tweeted:

“Obama has been re-elected president in the warmest year in American history. We’ll see now what he thinks his legacy should be. Obama never has to run again. Now we’ll find out what he really thinks about a lot of things.”

Do you think Obama’s victory will mean four more years of business as usual, or will we finally start to see real change and real progress on climate change?
