Taking a cue, perhaps, from conservative Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of R.I. plans to lead his fellow Democrats in a “marathon soliloquy” on the Senate floor, warning about the dangers of climate change, the Providence Journal reported.
Beginning Monday and continuing until 9 a.m. Tuesday, Whitehouse and a few dozen other senators — including Majority Leader Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Barbara Boxer, Elizabeth Warren, and Al Franken — will speak continuously on the Senate floor — “in groups and individually throughout the night” — about how climate change is affecting their states.
Whitehouse is expected to point to rising sea levels, the warming of Narragansett Bay and the midwinter blooming of fruit trees in R.I.
