Pawlenty hits the airwaves on global warming

Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty and Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano (a Democrat) are appearing in a radio ad urging Congress to take action on climate change. Environmental Defense is running the ad in the districts of those who sit on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Dan Cronin, a spokesman for Environmental Defense, says they want the House and Senate to pass the Warner/Lieberman Climate Change Bill this year.

Cronin says they chose Pawlenty and Napolitano because they are well regarded in both parties and have taken state action to address climate change. Several western governors also appeared on TV advocating action on climate change. You can listen to the Pawlenty/Napolitano ad here.
