GOP Climate Hawks Caught On Video

Watch: New Hampshire Republicans fed up with anti-science rhetoric want their party back.

They are a species trying to bolster their waning numbers: GOP climate hawks. Recently I’d heard there would be a gathering of these elusive creatures—Republicans who believe that climate change is real, and a serious threat. So I grabbed my camera to document their behavior in the field. They may be in the political wilderness these days, but they are making their call heard ahead of the all-important New Hampshire primary.
