"Joe Lieberman was fighting for climate action two decades ago, when it was barely on the national agenda. In 2003, he and John McCain forced a vote in the Senate on their bipartisan climate solutions bill – giving us a chance to deal with this issue before it became the crisis we face today. His strong, practical voice on environmental issues will be missed."
