Pelosi Delegation, Rep. Joe Neguse Included, Says US Is Still in The Climate Fight
Combating climate change has long been a driving issue for Colorado Democratic Rep. Joe Neguse of Boulder. He ran on it; he was an early supporter of the Green New Deal; and he now serves on the House Select Committee on Climate Change, which held its first field hearing in Boulder this summer.
On Friday, Neguse and Casten, along with Oregon Democratic Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, introduced a bill meant to prevent efforts to downplay climate change in federal research and publications. The measure would require a public explanation, citing scientific reasons, any time a political appointee removes references to climate change from scientific studies and press releases.
