“The poll clearly shows that voters of both parties want to see their elected officials address climate change,” Alex Flint, AMS’s executive director, told E&E News. “Florida is key not just to Florida politicians, but also because it is a presidential swing state that could determine the presidential election outcome in November.”

About the Author is an organization committed to growing U.S. conservative climate leadership. Members of republicEn are conservatives, libertarians, and pragmatists of diverse political opinion. We stand together because we believe in American free enterprise. We believe that with a true level playing field, free enterprise can deliver the innovation to solve climate change. But America's climate policy needs to change. Change requires that conservative leaders step-up and lead. Climate change is real and we believe it's our duty and our opportunity to reduce the risks. But to make a difference, we have to fight climate change with free enterprise instead of ineffective subsidies and regulations.
