"That's my goal," Obama told the popular Daily Show when asked what he plans to achieve in the remaining 18 months of his second term.

"The way I'm feeling right now is, I've got 18 months," he said.

Obama said he hopes to tackle climate change, fuel efficiency standards and to persuade countries like China and India to come aboard.

"That's my goal. It finally comes to fruition. That represents a lot of work," he added.
