BOSTON – Massachusetts Democrat Sen. John Kerry, exasperated at what he called "the flat-earth caucus," on Sunday described the frustrations of working on environmental issues in the U.S. Senate.
Even amid the "Tuesday Group" – a bi-partisan bloc of lawmakers, mostly Democrats, who are interested in energy issues – "you can't talk about climate now," Kerry said. "People just turn off. It's extraordinary. Only for national security and jobs will they open their minds."
