House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla., will lead the resurrected special committee on climate change, which the GOP killed off in 2011.

Pelosi said in a statement that Castor will bring an new “urgency to the existential threat of the climate crisis” facing the United States and the world in leading the committee. The presumed incoming speaker also said the committee will shape how Congress addresses global warming while also looking at ways to create good-paying, “green” jobs.

The news comes as Castor launched a campaign with fellow Florida Democrat Charlie Crist to convince the United Nations to hold its 25th international meeting on climate change, or COP25, in Tampa, Florida.


Castor will be entering her seventh term in the House next year. She also serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee.
