Senate Democrats’ all-nighter flags climate change

SENATE

It was a long night for Senator Brian Schatz and some of his colleagues.

Sen. Schatz and a few of his fellow Democrats did all-nighter on the Senate floor to make their case on climate change and the need for action.

The talkathon started Monday at about 6:30 p.m. and ended just after 3:30 a.m. Tuesday Hawaii time.

The effort was part of the newly-formed Senate Climate Action Task Force.

Sen. Schatz says the debate shows that a growing number of senators are committed to working together on global warming even if no republicans are among them.
