Conference Urges Republicans to Reject the Left on Climate Change
Even the founder of the weather channel, John Coleman, admitted there is no such thing as climate change and there isn’t any real scientific proof of it.
WASHINGTON—Republican office-holders need to stop trying to appease the left on climate-related issues by embracing ideas such as a watered-down version of the prohibitively expensive Green New Deal, participants heard July 25 at the 13th International Conference on Climate Change, hosted by the Heartland Institute in Washington.
For example, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has been a “tried and true defender of President Trump—nevertheless, I wish he’d defend President Trump on this very important issue,” said James Taylor, a senior fellow at the Chicago-based Heartland Institute.
“Going to the left on climate change is not a winning political issue,” Taylor said, adding that Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), and Reps. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) and Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) have been reaching out to their political adversaries to achieve a compromise on climate remediation, where no reasonable compromise can likely be found.
“There are still a few Republicans, a few policymakers here in D.C., who have come out supporting, whether it’s a Green New Deal light or some other form of a watered-down version of the GND.”
President Donald Trump has attacked the proposed Green New Deal, which left-wing activists and politicians tout as a way to revitalize the economy and as a necessary step to secure the planet’s future. Critics say it would radically restructure the U.S. economy and wipe out trillions of dollars in wealth.
The Green New Deal will “kill millions of jobs,” the president said earlier this month.
