Boxer Press Conference on Global Warming Principles

Senator Barbara Boxer held a press conference today to discuss global warming principles that will be used to craft legislation intended to mitigate the most serious environmental issue facing the world today. The press conference was held in the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (EP&W) room (Dirksen 406).

Chairwoman Boxer emphasized that America should not delay passing climate change mitigation legislation due to fears about an economic recession. She also did not specify when the legislation would be introduced. Senator Boxer said a bill could be introduced in three weeks or by the end of the year before the Copenhagen meeting on global warming mitigation in December.
