House Republicans Wednesday launched the Conservative Climate Caucus. The caucus includes more than 50 representatives from every committee with jurisdiction over climate policy and various ranking members.
Utah Representative John Curtis chairs the caucus, stating, “We do care about climate – and we already have solutions and plan to find more.”
The goal of the Conservative Climate Caucus is to bring members of the Republican Party together to educate each other on climate policies that will make progress on reducing emissions through American innovation and resources.
In a news release, Curtis says proposals to reduce emissions and be good stewards of the earth do not have to hurt the American economy, adding, “There is a way to lower global emissions without sacrificing American jobs and principles.”
A webpage describing the caucus states that with innovative technologies, fossil fuels can and should be a major part of the global solution, adding, “Reducing emissions is the goal, not reducing energy choices.”
