Is Nancy Pelosi going to paint her roof white?

Just wondering, since this report came in from the Associated Press:
Turning around her usual criticisms about human rights, Pelosi linked global warming to environmental justice, saying the right to a clean environment is also a human right.
“I do see this opportunity for climate change to be … a game-changer,” she said at Tsinghua. “It’s a place where human rights — looking out for the needs of the poor in terms of climate change and healthy environment — are a human right.”
To achieve this, Pelosi said governments would have to make decisions and choices based on science.
“They also have to do it with openness, transparency and accountability to the people,” she said. “Everyone has to have their situation improved by it.”
In answering a question from a student about how Pelosi was going to get Americans to cut back on their carbon emissions, the leading Democratic lawmaker said it was important to educate children on how to conserve energy and for citizens to build more environmentally friendly homes.
“We have so much room for improvement,” she said. “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory … of how we are taking responsibility.”
