Barbara Boxer’s global hot seat

This year is likely to be the hottest in history, according to Britain’s Met Office, thanks to a combination of El Nino and global warming.

While yet more climatological red flags will likely be raised throughout 2007, we’ll probably hear less from the world’s biggest oil company and an outgoing Republican senator that the latter is an illusion, or at least exaggerated.

Sen. Barbara Boxer, who takes over as chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, has promised that combatting climate change will be her top priority. While Congress will likely move “incrementally,” she vows that there will be a “sea change” in how the committee addresses environmental issues.
