Solyndra

"It is time for House Republicans to stop dancing on Solyndra’s grave and start getting serious about energy policy. And it is shameful for members of this Committee to deny the science and pretend that we do not need a comprehensive clean energy policy. Something far more important is at stake today than scoring partisan political points: the future of our economy and the health of our planet will be at risk until we find a way to come together and enact policies that stop weather-changing carbon pollution and make our nation the world leader in clean energy."  - Ranking Member Waxman
