Lindsey Graham on Climate Change

“I have been to the Antarctic, I have been to Alaska. I am not a scientist, and I have the grades to prove it. But I’ve talked to the climatologists of the world and 90% of them are telling me that the greenhouse gas effect is real, that we’re heating up the planet. I just want a solution that would be good for the economy that doesn’t destroy it.”

And that should be what defines the difference between the Left and the Right on climate change. The left’s position is “climate change is happening, we have the ability to do something about it, so let’s do it.”

Our position on the right should be “climate change is happening, we have the ability to do something about it without destroying the economy or ending the world as we know it, so let’s do it before our dithering makes a reasonable solution impossible.”
