The GOP’s plan to attack the science behind human contribution to climate change would be a mistake. Using their majority to challenge scientific evidence could bolster the thought the GOP is more focused on the interests of big business, then in the future of our children. The changing climate is all part of the Earths’ natural cycle, and human excess is a contributing factor. Instead of attacking science, finding alternate methods to produce energy seems to be a better focus point. Why are we still using combustible engines to travel? Why are we burning coal and utilizing nuclear power for electricity?
The only reasonable explanation is that new technology is at odds with old profits. The lobby for the oil industry is so large that it squashes any attempt to move us away from burning fossil fuels. Why would we allow leaking nuclear plants to continue operating? The answer is old industry is preventing new technology from sprouting. Big thanks to friend of the site Keith Mann for contributing information.
In the end any attempt to claim humans aren’t contributing to climate change is irresponsible. The GOP’s plan to attack science in the name of jobs and economic prosperity is turning a blind eye to the future. The upcoming generations understand that their future lies in renewable energy sources. With all the Progressivism bordering on Socialism looming in the country, it would be a shame for Conservatives to waste their new found majority on debating science.
