LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — President Barack Obama is encouraging college graduates to keep up the fight against climate change.

The president is expected to issue a call to action on global warming in a commencement address today at the University of California, Irvine. Earlier this month, he announced a contentious plan to cut pollution from power plants.

While in Orange County, Obama also raised money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door fundraiser at the Laguna Beach home of Getty oil heiress Anne Earhart. About 25 people paid up to $32,400 to participate in a roundtable discussion with the president.

He’s spending the rest of the Father’s Day weekend on vacation at the Rancho Mirage home of White House decorator Michael Smith and his partner, U.S. Ambassador to Spain James Costos.
