Republicans file climate resolution as public concern hits 30-year high

Published on 16/03/2017, 11:01am 

In a repudiation of President Trump’s stance, 17 lawmakers from his party are calling for “economically viable” climate policies.

SNIPPET:

US president Donald Trump may be determined to de-fund climate science, scrap emissions curbs and bring back coal, but there is dissent in his party ranks.   

In a resolution filed on Wednesday, 17 Republican lawmakers registered concern about the risks associated with climate change and called for “economically viable” policies to address it.

Led by New York representative Elise Stefanik, Florida’s Carlos Curbelo and Pennsylvania’s Ryan Costello, the green conservatives warned: “If left unaddressed, the consequences of a changing climate have the potential to adversely impact all Americans.”

They expressed support for measures to address the causes and effects of global warming, “using our tradition of American ingenuity, innovation, and exceptionalism”.

It came as a Gallup poll showed 45% of Americans worry “a great deal” about global warming, the highest level in three decades. Belief the phenomenon is primarily caused by human activity – reflecting the scientific consensus – also reached a record high of 68%.

Gallup suggested a series of warm weather records, coupled with anxiety about Trump’s dismissive stance, could be behind the heightened climate concern.
