As a republican, I acknowledge that climate change is a real problem. Unfortunately, politicians like Ted Cruz seek to make the issue a matter of political opinion instead of objectively looking at the overwhelming evidence to support it. This bill aims to kill the fed's means of regulating climate change. We do need to combat climate change, and do so in a responsible and reasonable manner, balancing the protection of the Earth and the prosperity of our economy. But what Ted is proposing is to simply ignore the problem and leave our children to pay an even steeper price. This is highly partisan, irresponsible and short-sighted policy. A better solution would be to establish bi-partisan guidelines for regulating carbon emissions and climate change that are not disruptive to the economy.
