On a cold, dark day this past December, I faced my expedition team. Granted, we were not traveling across the Arctic, but the challenge that lay ahead wasn't that different from the minus 40 degree temperatures and strong winds my team had faced crossing Antarctica. On this day, our challenge lay in moving the U.S. Senate forward to see that it enacted the pledges President Obama had made at the United Nations climate summit in Copenhagen.
