The faction of the Republican Party that cares much about climate change is small. But it just scored an influential advocate with deep connections in Congress and in conservative political circles across the country.
I’m a conservative, and I believe that climate change is real.
I believe it is time our leaders come together to advance free-market solutions that will reduce our impact on the climate.
I believe we can make our air and water cleaner, ensure greater domestic energy security, and strengthen our economy through smart, market-driven investments in clean energy sources like wind, solar, and nuclear.
And, I believe it is our responsibility as conservatives to be good stewards of God’s creation. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to ensure American prosperity and environmental security.
