While firefighters continue to put their lives on the line to battle the Silver fire in Riverside County, Calif., that has scorched more than 10,000 acres, Sen. Barbara Boxer stepped forward at an afternoon press conference to urge fellow politicians to “wake up” to climate change.
No, she can’t.
Also hindering the emergency response? Sequestration cuts, apparently.
In any case, Boxer’s take on the fire made for a “great dialogue.”
Here’s some more of that “great dialogue” that the senator probably missed.
