WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he'll unveil a national plan to combat climate change in a speech Tuesday.

Obama says no single step can reverse climate change. He says scientists must design new fuels and energy sources, and workers must prepare for a clean energy economy.

Obama isn't saying what specifics he'll lay out. But White House aides have suggested the steps will include renewable energy and energy-efficient appliances and buildings.

The plan is also expected to involve the Environmental Protection Agency using its authority under the Clean Air Act to regulate heat-trapping pollution from coal-fired power plants.
