Re­as­sured by con­ser­va­tive en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists

Hartford Courant - - Opinion -

I share Max Boot’s opin­ion that global warm­ing is scary [Nov. 30, Opin­ion, “I now be­lieve. Global warm­ing is scary”].

To help deal with my fears, I seek out or­ga­ni­za­tions that of­fer ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions for de­creas­ing green­house gases, and I am grate­ful to find con­ser­va­tive voices.

The re­cent bi­par­ti­san House Res­o­lu­tion 7173 — En­ergy In­no­va­tion and Car­bon Div­i­dend Act of 2018 — was spon­sored by three Repub­li­cans and three Democrats who are members of the House Cli­mate So­lu­tion Cau­cus, a bi­par­ti­san cau­cus ini­ti­ated and sup­ported by Cit­i­zens Cli­mate Lobby.

Al­though I’m not a con­ser­va­tive, I am as­sured that many con­ser­va­tives are de­ter­mined to find so­lu­tions to cli­mate change. I’m hope­ful that bi­par­ti­san ef­forts will lead to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions that will mit­i­gate the most se­ri­ous ef­fects of cli­mate change.
