Barbara BoxerBarbara BoxerSenate panel backs B water bill with Flint aid The Hill's 12:30 Report Fiorina fires back at Barbara Boxer MORE (D-Calif.) for her work on the Lieberman-Warner climate bill, which is now being debated in the Senate.

"I want to commend Senator Boxer for her leadership of the Environment and Public Works Committee," Gore said in a statement yesterday. "Thanks to her vision and dedication, we have the first global warming bill in history that is comprehensive, bipartisan and that enjoys support across the country -- from labor and agriculture to the business and the environmental communities. Of course the bill needs to be stronger, but it's vital that Congress begin to act. While it's important that people change their light bulbs, it's even more important that we change the laws."

Boxer chairs the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
