Arizona Governor Doug Ducey acknowledged that human activity contributes to climate change, a shift from his previous stance. “Humans are part of the earth, the environment and the ecosystem,” he said. “The skepticism isn’t so much around causes…It’s around suggested remedies.” A recent Arizona-based survey found that 72 percent of those questioned—including a majority of Republicans—think climate change is happening.

“If the United States decides to do something, other nations that are large emitters like India and China have to come along,” he said, while calling for a “balance of reforms” in pursuit of “a growing economy and an improving environment.”
