I'm generally not a huge fan of John Kerry, but I LOVE him in this video giving a verbal smackdown during a Senate hearting on climate change — the object of his "affection" is Kenneth Green, a professional doubt monger from the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank dedicated to spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt about things like climate change, politics and economics to further the goals of the Right.

I agree with Brian Merchant over at Treehugger: Mr. Kerry knows his climate science. It's too bad that the best we can hope for is to get a watered-down bill, I'd like to see what Sens. Kerry and Boxer would have put forth if they only had to get 51 votes to pass.
