    “The allegations here just hold water, they just don’t make sense…What we should be talking about as Democrats is how we’re going to fundamentally address climate change…and the massive difference between Democrats and Republicans on this issue…I have many times praised Sen.

    Re Senator Warner talks about “sea level rise.” It is not a good sign that euphemisms still have to be used in such an article. That is, “sea level rise” instead of climate change, and “resiliency” instead of flood control. How can we find the political will to act when we can’t call things what they are?

      True, although I’m pleased to see Warner signing the amicus brief to the Supreme Court on the Clean Power Plan.
