"Natural gas flaring and leaks are wasteful, pollute the air we breathe, and undermine our best efforts to grapple with climate change", he said, calling for "significant" investments in clean, efficient energy production.

Following a United Nations report on Monday that concluded world leaders have only two decades to end emissions of greenhouse gases or suffer catastrophic climate change, the European Union took just 13 hours to announce plans to cut emissions from cars and trucks a further 35 percent by 2030. The Institute for Energy Research found that China produced nearly one-third of the world's total carbon emissions past year. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said, adding that his responsibility was to "balance those interests raised in that report with (his state's) broader economic and security interests".

But a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change avoids any of these claims of climate chanage causing hurricanes to be more frequent or more severe.
