U.S. Senators from the Senate Climate Action Task Force gather on Capitol Hill in WashingtonBy Thomas Ferraro and Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More than two dozen U.S. Senate Democrats joined forces to speak through the night on Monday, hoping to “wake up” Congress to what is seen as the threat of climate change. “Despite overwhelming scientific evidence and overwhelming public opinion, climate change deniers still exist,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said. “They exist in this country and in this Congress.” The Nevada Democrat made the comments in kicking off the marathon gabfest at 6:27 p.m. on Monday. Thirty of the Senate’s 53 Democrats, plus the two independents who caucus with them, have signed up to participate.
