“We are seeing the very real impact climate change is having on my state and its economy today,” Hagan said. “In the absence of action, this extreme weather is here to stay.”
Hagan’s speech comes as Senate Democrats are looking to make climate change a key issue in the 2014 midterm elections.
This is the same Democrat who in January declined to attend a speech given by Obama in her home state, so it’s understandable that she’d look for some other issue, any issue, to distract voters from the performance of her leader in the White House. Too bad nobody cares about global warming.
