CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee Senator Bob Corker is among a delegation flying to Greenland tomorrow to see the effects of global warming.
Corker and Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson are the only Republicans going with seven Democrats and one independent. The trip is led by California Senator Barbara Boxer, who is chairwoman of the Environment and Public Works Committee.
Corker told the Chattanooga Times Free Press' correspondent in Washington there's a lot of evidence that humans are largely responsible for climate change.
The Senators will view deterioration of glaciers. Also on the trip will be Pennsylvania State University geosciences professor Richard Alley, the lead author of a chapter in a recent UN report documenting human-induced climate change.
