Reid: Time to stop acting like those who deny climate crisis have a valid view

I am grateful to Senator Schatz, Senator Whitehouse and Senator Boxer – and many other Senators who will join this climate change debate tonight – for standing up to the deniers. It’s time to stop acting like those who ignore this crisis – the oil baron Koch brothers and their allies in Congress – have a valid point of view.

— Excerpt from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s remarks kicking off the all-night-long Senate session to raise awareness of the climate crisis.
