(FOX NEWS) President Obama is aiming to sidestep Congress as part of his plan to combat climate change, in what one adviser openly hoped would be the start of a “war on coal.”

Critics of the president’s energy policies have long accused the administration of prosecuting a so-called “war” on fossil fuel industries. Obama, all along, has claimed he’s in favor of an all-of-the-above energy strategy.

His speech at Georgetown University on Tuesday, though, will push government regulations toward cracking down further on fossil fuels. Among the proposals, Obama is expected to announce the first-ever federal regulations on emissions from existing power plants.
