Climate Change: How did we part ways? How do we come back together?

HOW DID WE GET OFF COURSE? How do we come together and get back on track to address the #ClimateEmergency?

We are pleased that NH's Senator Kelly Ayotte​ has moved to act on climate. We must act aggressively, #together, on this very serious problem already impacting every life on Earth. #FossilFree603

"In addition to John McCain, Republicans like Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, and even Sarah Palin agreed that taking action to mitigate climate change was a conservative thing to do. When business leaders published a letter in 2009 explicitly calling for climate legislation, guess who signed it.

So what happened? How did it become politically risky for Republicans to talk about the challenges climate change will pose to global health and security? How did they go from listening to experts to accusing them of conspiracies? And how can they now paint themselves (and the whole country) out of this corner?"
