Will outline climate change plan on Tuesday

President Barack Obama is preparing to bypass Congress on climate change and use his executive powers on everything from power plants to energy standards for appliances.

The president on Tuesday will outline the climate plan in a highly anticipated speech, and though official details are still under wraps, a top White House official said this week the president's agenda will focus broadly on EPA regulations, energy efficiency and renewable power.
