House Democrats Held The First Climate Change Hearings In Six Years. It Was A Mess

“Climate change is a civil rights issue,” Reverend Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, told lawmakers on the committee on Wednesday morning. Lennox also referred to tackling global warming as the “lunch counter moment for the 21st century.”

“When I think of climate change, I don’t think in terms of green. I think in terms of black and brown,” California Rep. Nanette Barragán said during Energy and Commerce hearing.
