Global Warming and National Security

Hosted by  • 

Despite a Republican boycott, Democrats today jammed a cap-and-trade climate change bill though the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Chairwoman Barbara Boxer of California said the Republican demand was "duplicative and a waste of taxpayer dollars." With just a month until a United Nations conference in Copenhagen, they wanted to show the world that Congress is ready for action on global warming. Republicans, and some Democrats, are worried about the cost of mandatory limits on heat-trapping gases, so supporters have raised a new question: Do melting icecaps, violent storms, rising sea levels and drought threaten global stability and America's national security?
