Chairman Waxman's Statement on Completion of Climate Talks in Copenhagen
This morning in Copenhagen, the parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change completed their work on the Copenhagen Accord. In response, Rep. Henry A. Waxman released the following statement.
"Due to President Obama's leadership, the vast majority of the world has come together to meaningfully tackle climate change. No one should be surprised that Venezuela, Cuba, and just a handful of countries attempted to stand in the way of international progress on climate change. Fortunately, while they may have blocked consensus, they have not blocked progress."
