From the Raw Story:
Citing "a growing chorus of voices," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called Thursday for "mandatory action to reduce greenhouse gas pollution"and said she wants legislation ready for July 4th – which she declares "Energy Independence Day."Wow. Now that's interesting news.
The Speaker's remarks came at the beginning of a hearing of the House Committee on Science and Technology this morning.
The Speaker also answered an inquiry from Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK) on nuclear energy by saying that while she was once opposed to nuclear energy, changing technology had made her "bring a more open mind" to the option.
"It has to be on the table," she said.
UPDATE: Another reaction from Power Pundit.
