A faction of conservatives pushes to build its own climate movement At a rally next month in Miami, one group is trying to kick-start a conservative grassroots climate movement.
“WASHINGTON — Before he became a climate activist during his freshman year of college, Benji Backer had spoken at the Conservative Political Action Conference, written for right-leaning sites such as TownHall and RedState, and made a name for himself as a conservative commentator on television.
But like many other young people, he worried about climate change. . . “
“So in 2017, Backer founded the American Conservation Coalition, which next month is hosting what it bills as the first conservative climate rally.
“We want to plant a flagpole in the sand to say, this is an issue conservatives can and should lead on,” he said. “There is absolutely zero path to a zero emissions, climate change-free future without bipartisanship — and anybody who doesn’t accept that isn’t taking this seriously.”
There are ignorant and stupid people on both sides of the aisle. Anyone labeling C02 a threat to life on earth is nuts.
Fact: Carbon dioxide exists in the Earth’s atmosphere at a concentration of approximately 0.04 percent (400 parts per million) by volume. And of these 0.04 percent CO2, 95 percent come from natural sources, such as volcanoes or decomposition processes in nature. There are 500 cities in the world with more air pollution than any US city. The climate is always changing blaming it on manmade C02 is absurd.
