Representative Sean Casten Raps to “Fergalicious” About Climate Change
Was that rapper Eminem on the House floor? No, it wasn't Eminem, that was U. S. Representative Sean Casten, a Democrat from Chicago. He rapped on the House floor Wednesday in an attempt to call attention to climate change. The "F to the E to the R to the C", said Casten when referring to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission during his speech. People didn't really know what to think when the Representative dropped the speech to Fergie's hit "Fergalicious". He literally brought the House down.

I rise to continue our celebration of hot FERC summer. As climate activist Fergie would certainly say, the FERC-alicious definition is to make our planet cooler. -U.S. Rep. Sean Casten
Having a well-air-conditioned home when it’s ‘hot, hot,’ that’s FERC-alicious, getting your electricity from the lowest cost reliable source - FERC-alicious. An electric transmission system that keeps everything from electric vehicles to steel mills running with zero-carbon electricity, FERC-alicious. -U.S. Rep. Sean Casten
Just over a week ago, Rep. Casten kicked off #HotFERCSummer.

Rep. Casten concluded, “And now I yield back so I can go work on my fitness.
