Sen. Franken chides GOP no-shows at hearing on impact of climate change
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) chided Republicans Thursday over their absence from a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing on the effects of rising sea levels on energy facilities and other infrastructure.
But ironically theres an elephant in the room, Franken said after noting the lack of GOP members. Climate change is the elephant, and climate change-induced sea level rise is clearly impacting the health and security of our nation. But this is a fact of life that is going unnoticed by too many Americans because science is taking a back seat to politics.
thank goodness we’ve heard from the senate’s preiminent legal scholar.(according to Joe Biteme)
