Congressman David McKinley hosted a panel discussion focusing on climate change Thursday in Fairmont.
Some things that were discussed included the factors behind climate change, responses to it, and the science behind it.
Congressman McKinley said it's a topic that he is very passionate about but it's also one that many people are unaware of.
"Where is a better place to talk about climate change then in an energy state? West Virginia is by far one of the biggest producers of power and electricity in this nation. Let's come to West Virginia and be able to talk on both sides of the issue," Congressman McKinley said.
Congressman McKinley encourages West Virginians to do their homework and learn about an issue that will affect everyone.
