CAP’s Joseph Romm calls conservatives ‘deniers and delayers’ on warming policy

Author and Center for American Progress senior fellow Joseph Romm says if aggressive action on climate change is not taken soon, the effects on the planet will be dire. In his new book, Hell and High Water: Global Warming — the Solution and the Politics — and What We Should Do, Romm explains why he thinks a state of “planetary purgatory” is inevitable. During today’s OnPoint, Romm, a former Department of Energy official under President Clinton, discusses what he believes to be the most viable solutions for addressing and stopping the effects of climate change. Romm also challenges media coverage of global warming, saying too much attention has been paid to climate change skeptics.
