Climate Power and the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) hosted a unique press event this morning allowing reporters the opportunity to hear stories from people across the country and learn how climate change-fueled extreme weather events have hurt their communities. Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, Minnesota Sen. Tina Smith, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, Rep. Sean Casten (IL-06), and Rep. Joe Neguse (CO-02) highlighted the urgency of the moment and the need for Congress to unite and take bold action on the climate crisis. And they were joined by constituents who understand that severe weather events like wildfires, extreme heat, hurricanes, and flooding are inescapable and are getting worse.
