Sen. Whitehouse To Deliver 100th Climate Speech On Senate Floor

May 18, 2015

Later today, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse delivers his 100th address on climate change. In what has become a weekly ritual, the Rhode Island democrat takes to the Senate floor to call for action on climate change. Rhode Island Public Radio’s environmental reporter Ambar Espinoza caught up with Whitehouse at the Volvo Ocean Race in Newport to talk about what motivates him and what he’s learned since he delivered his first speech three years ago.

Correction: A previous version of the text stated Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse delivered his first speech two years ago. He delivered it three years ago, in April 2012.
