Big Win for Climate Sanity in the Midterm Elections

November 13, 2018

Climate Sanity prevailed over dogmatic climate alarmism in the 2018 midterm elections as key ballot measures failed in numerous states.

For the most part, climate concerns lost and energy sanity won in the 2018 midterm elections. Voters in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, and Washington State rejected policies that would have raised energy costs and limited the use of fossil fuels in order to fight climate change. Nevada voters approved harmful renewable energy mandates but, because Constitutional Amendments must pass twice before they become law in the silver state, voters have the opportunity to reflect on and correct their mistake in the next election. Heartland will be on the ground in Nevada, showing why they should reject renewable energy mandates.
