A congressman says, regardless of what you call it, climate change or global warming is not an important topic for American families. 

U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) makes his comments ahead of next month's hearings on the Obama administration's current and proposed climate policies.

Brady, Kevin (R-TX)More than a dozen federal agencies have been asked to testify about the White House's policies – and what many lawmakers see as their attempts to go around Congress and implement policies themselves.

According to Brady, the White House is concerned about global warming more than the “terrible economy, huge deficits and concerns about health care.”

“No matter what you call it, climate change or global warming,” says Brady, “it's not the most important thing for American families."

While environmentalists will take issue with Brady's comments, Pew Research Center did a survey in March which found that even though 69 percent of Americans agree there is solid evidence the earth is warming, only 33 percent described it as a "very" serious problem, while another 32 percent said it was "somewhat serious."

Meanwhile, Americans were asked in January about what should be a top priority for the president and congress this year. Global warming ranked dead last.
