"She used to drag me to natural history museums." President Obama credits his mother for his interest in science and the environment. He added that she'd often wake him in the middle of the night to view particularly spectacular full moons. In an interview on Midway Atoll with National Geographic environment writer Craig Welch, the President reflected on his legacy and how he thinks we should focus efforts to save natural places.
