Herseth: Melted Ice is dramatic
Read it all here in the Argus.
Just back from a weeklong, four-nation tour to learn what other countries are doing about climate change, Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D, said that in Greenland, she saw melted ice flowing from glaciers caused by global warming.
"That's pretty powerful," she said Friday. "To see the ice that had broken off from the main glaciers is dramatic."
Pelosi, D-Calif., praised the European Union's aggressive new energy policy, which calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions 20 percent below 1990 levels by 2020.
and...Herseth Sandlin was more diplomatic. She said Bush's proposal was a first step, but "we have to fill in with the details." She agreed with Pelosi that more must be done to slow the long-term effects of global warming.
We're still waiting for an announcement of the Herseth Sandlin sponsored Pelosi tour of the Conata basin.
