"Politics: Climate Change Returns To Center Stage In House"

"House Democrats this morning brought climate change back to the political forefront for the first time in nearly a decade and were met with a Republican tone shift far from the skeptical attitude the GOP has taken to the issue for years.

The Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment and Climate Change and the full Natural Resources Committee met simultaneously to discuss the need to act on climate change and the costs of inaction.

Democrats, unsurprisingly, talked about the issue in broad strokes, at times comparing it to the moon landing and the nation's other great scientific and technological challenges."
