Sen. Babara Boxer, chair of the Environment and Public Works Committee and the floor manager of the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act, gave the Democratic radio address on Saturday. In it, she talked up the need for action on climate change now and why senators should support the bill. You can listen to the full address here. An excerpt:
Senators have come together across party lines to write a law that will not only enable us to avoid the ravages of unchecked global warming, but will create millions of new jobs and put us on the path to energy independence. Other benefits of our legislation will be cleaner air, energy efficiency, relief for consumers, and the alternative energy choices that American families deserve. And, by acting wisely, America will regain the leadership we have lost these past seven years.
