John Kerry on House Rebuke of Bush on Climate Change

by Pamela Leavey

A House Committee voted for a mandatory cap on greenhouse gas emissions today, even with the Bush Administration still in denial on climate change. John Kerry issued the following statement on the vote by the House Appropriations Committee, today:

“By supporting a mandatory cap on greenhouse gas emissions, the House Appropriations Committee today led a rebellion against George Bush’s head in the sand denial of global climate change.

“Today marks the beginning of a major accountability moment for the Bush Administration’s failed environmental policies.

“Now the only two people left in Washington who refuse to recognize climate change as a real threat are former oil executives President Bush and Vice President Cheney. The rest of us insist on living in a reality-based society.”
