Vice President Gore testified at a joint meeting of House committees about global climate change, environmental policy, and future policy options to reduce emissions and improve environmental standards. In his testimony he characterized the problem as the most dangerous crisis in American history and proposed several measures to fix the problem, such as an immediate freeze on new emissions from cars and power plants. Several lawmakers expressed doubts about the scientific evidence for his claims and feasibility of the solutions.
