GOP Senator Lindsey Graham Gets It On Climate Change
Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham says his party will become more and more irrelevant if it embraces climate change deniers.
I have been to enough college campuses to know if you are 30 or younger this climate issue is not a debate. It’s a value. These young people grew up with recycling and a sensitivity to the environment — and the world will be better off for it. They are not brainwashed. … From a Republican point of view, we should buy into it and embrace it and not belittle them. You can have a genuine debate about the science of climate change, but when you say that those who believe it are buying a hoax and are wacky people you are putting at risk your party’s future with younger people.
It’s a refreshing position from a senator who cares about science and policy more than pandering to the least informed elements of his party on this issue.
