NWF: GOP Leaders Resurrect Cheney Energy Plan

House Republicans are holding a mock climate hearing today in the Capitol Visitors Center. Here’s what Joe Mendelson, the National Wildlife Federation’s global warming policy director has to say about the “hearing”:

Republican leaders have resurrected the Cheney energy plan, written by oil companies for oil companies. They have a new set of talking points to disguise the same old plans to increase profits of greedy energy companies. Their real agenda is to derail efforts in Congress to build a clean energy economy that creates millions of clean energy jobs and protects our environment.

Grist’s Kate Sheppard is inside the “hearing.” You can see updates on her Twitter feed!
