Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Boston

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House, is addressing thousands of state legislators at the National Conference of State Legislatures in Boston. About climate change, she said: "state legislators know consequences of global warming...it is as local as neighborhoods and as global a the planet." Pelosi talked about addressing global warming as an economic, environmental and moral issue and spoke with pride about energy legislation moving through Congress.

Pelosi's comments on global warming drew much applause, I wonder if she knows that earlier this week that this body failed to adopt a climate change policy for the second year in a row...
