Republicans Shouldn't Jump on the Climate Crisis Bandwagon (Guest: Steve Milloy)

March 10, 2020

Congressional Republicans are starting to jump on the Climate Bandwagon. We break down why this is a lazy, misguided move.

Polls and past elections demonstrate climate change is not an important issue for voters. Republican bills purportedly to fight climate change will raise energy costs and do nothing to prevent climate change. This is a misguided attempt by some Republicans to be able to say they are doing something to fight climate change, but it will likely cost them more votes than they expect.
