Henry Waxman's Path Forward March 10, 2011 : 3:37 PM

Speaking Monday at the Center for American Progress, Congressman Henry Waxman offered his view on the path we should take to solve the climate crisis: [

“First, preserve the Administration’s existing authorities. While Congress has been debating what to do, President Obama and his Administration have been taking important steps administratively. As a result of the Administration’sleadership, vehicles will be cleaner and more fuel-efficient than ever.”

“Second, we need to educate the public about what is happening in Washington. The Republican anti-science, anti-environment agenda may be the will of oil companies, but it is not what American families want.”

“Finally, we need to find a way to work together across party lines to address the problems of climate change and our dependence on foreign oil.”
