A week of Action on the Hill

As Sophia mentioned below, this has been quite a week on the Hill for hearings on Climate Change. Although not specifically related to the security effects of climate change, it is nonetheless important to keep up with what's going down on the Hill. Here's so quick links to articles about the hearings:

This morning, Al Gore testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee that this bill "has the moral significance equivalent to that of the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s and the Marshall Plan of the late 1940s.'' Testifying along with him, Newt Gingrich, however, said that this bill was a "huge mistake" and ammounted to a major new tax on energy.

At the same hearing, former Senator Warner focused on the national security implications of climate change.

Among the things that this bill would do, it would create a new "National Climate Service" to log and coolate all the data in the US about climate change.

On Huffington Post, John Kerry writes that Newt is rehashing "The same tired formula".
