"Climate: Democrats Look To Undercut Trump in Madrid"

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other congressional Democrats are in Madrid for U.N. climate talks this week, lending a high-profile voice to U.S. supporters of the Paris climate agreement as the 2020 elections heat up.

The delegation of more than a dozen lawmakers also includes Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone (D-N.J.); Natural Resources Chairman Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.); Science, Space and Technology Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas); and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).

Democrats said their presence would demonstrate continued commitment to tackling climate change in the U.S. government, even as President Trump pulls out of the Paris Agreement."
