Tackling Climate Change Shouldn’t
Mean Reckless Spending
Are you conservative and care about climate?
The national debt stands in excess of 30 trillion dollars. That equates to 128% of annual GDP.
We need to apply conservative principles to solve this problem: reduce spending and introduce policy changes to spur economic growth. After all, America’s strength and fair economics drive innovation—not fickle tax incentives, clumsy mandates, or intrusive regulations.
How do we apply this to the climate challenge?
The small-government solution to climate change is simple accountability. Make all polluters accountable for the impacts of emissions by putting a price on those impacts. Nuclear, solar, wind, and hydro power thrive —not because government picked them as winners, but because the American people would see that cleaner sources are actually cheaper when you consider the costs associated with burning fossil fuels.
