Seventeen Republican members of Congress, ten of whom are in either their first or second terms, “are bucking long-time party positions and the new occupant of the White House” by supporting a brief statement called the “Republican Climate Resolution,” reports Bloomberg News. The short draft resolution doesn’t embrace every tenet of the Climate Change dogma, offering instead a statement of support for the supposed consensus that Climate Change is a proven danger requiring concerted effort growing out of “our tradition of American ingenuity, innovation, and exceptionalism.”
The bill is co-sponsored by Representatives Elise Stefanik of New York, Carlos Curbelo of Florida, and Ryan Costello of Pennsylvania. Rep. Curbelo, one of the chief authors of the resolution, is co-founder of the bipartisan House Climate Solutions Caucus. Eleven of that group’s thirteen Republican members have co-sponsored the Climate Resolution.
“Our founding fathers set up a political system that was to be reason-based – they didn’t believe in `alternative facts,’” stated South Carolina Republican Congressman Mark Sanford, who supports government action to abate the supposed menace of climate change. He has not addressed on record the abundant evidence that the UN-centered climate alarmism movement has deliberately created so-called “alternative facts” by manipulating data.
On the basis of what Sanford admits is largely anecdotal evidence, the congressmen says that he’s convinced that anthropogenic climate change is real and “dangerous.”
