WATCH – Senators Still Blocking Climate Action After Gulf Disaster
Senate Republican leaders had little new to say after emerging from a meeting with President Obama and Democratic senators despite the BP disaster and a series of polls from showing even deeper support than ever for climate action.
The polls have been issued in recent weeks by Washington Post, Benenson, CNN and most recently Wall Street Journal. The last one had a margin supporting climate action of 2 to 1. Republican leaders seem to be stuck in a feedback loop supporting Big Oil.
Watch NWF’s global warming policy director Joe Mendelson respond to the meeting and urge members to take action.
