Conservatives Take Action for Conservation

Many outdoor enthusiasts have seen the effects of climate change on outdoor landscapes, from years without enough snow to ski or favorite campgrounds flooded. A few weeks ago, a group of Republican House members, led by Elise Stefanik (R-NY) introduced a resolution (H. Res. 195) recognizing the importance of environmental stewardship and the urgency of the fight against climate change.

This resolution is a small but valuable step to create consensus around climate change and conservation. In recent years, voters have become increasingly concerned about climate even as the issue has become unnecessarily partisan. The resolution takes aim at conservative ethics, stating that "it is a conservative principle to protect, conserve, and be good stewards of our environment, responsibly plan for all market factors, and base our policy decisions in science and quantifiable facts on the ground" and as such we should work to develop "private and public solutions to study and address the causes and effects of measured changes to our global and regional climates, including mitigation efforts and efforts to balance human activities that have been found to have an impact."
