Representative Waxman waxes eloquent on the need to address climate change

U.S Representative Henry Waxman (D-33rd, CA) today issued the following statement about the National Climate Assessment:

“The National Climate Assessment shows that climate change is real, it’s happening now, and the impacts will be severe if we don’t act.  We are at a crossroads.  We can protect our environment by investing in the clean energy economy of the future, or we can deny the science and watch our coastlines flood, our forests burn, and our crops wither.  The special interests led by the Koch brothers and the fossil fuel industry have blocked action in Congress.  That’s why the President needs to use his administrative authority to cut the dangerous carbon pollution that is endangering the future of our children and grandchildren.”
