A Republican senator on Monday took to the Senate floor to discuss what’s bothering him. It wasn’t the Mueller investigation, or Hillary Clinton or estate taxes, either.

“Mr. President, I believe climate change is real. I believe that human emissions are a major cause of climate change. And I believe the Democratic plan for climate change — which the senator from Texas [John Cornyn] spoke about, the Green New Deal, is so far out in left field that not many are going to take it seriously.”

The former presidential candidate said he is proposing a “new Manhattan Project for clean energy,” to create breakthroughs in advanced nuclear reactors, natural gas, carbon capture, batteries, greener buildings, electric vehicles, cheaper solar power and fusion.
