Republican climate skeptic has on-air conversion in Showtime's ambitious 'Years of Living Dangerously'

There's a scene in Showtime's glossy new climate change documentary in which Republican Rep. Michael Grimm, a longtime skeptic, seems as if he's about to undergo a conversion of faith on global warming. Toward the end of the episode he appears in, Grimm, whose Staten Island, N.Y., constituents had to contend with the effects of Superstorm Sandy, tells MSNBC host Chris Hayes that his position on climate change has in fact evolved. But when Hayes asks what Grimm intends to do about it, politics as usual is back in play.
