US President Barack Obama has toured Resurrection Bay in the US state of Alaska.

Obama is counting on Alaska’s deteriorating landscape to elicit a sense of urgency for his call to action on climate change.

Earlier this week, he told a meeting for foreign ministers in Alaska that world leaders must agree to cut carbon emissions at a UN summit planned for December in Paris.

He said the Alaska had “some of the swiftest shoreline erosion rates in the world.”
