What If House Republicans Cared About Climate Change? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Have you ever envisioned an alternate reality in which the majority of House Republicans not only accepted the reality of man-made climate change but also saw it as an urgent national priority? Now you can, thanks to this mashup from Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.).

Even though only one of 9,136 authors of recent peer-reviewed climate articles rejects the basic idea of man-made global warming, more than half of the House's Republican caucus have made public statements questioning the existence of climate change and its human origin as a result of burning fossil fuels.

In a January vote on an anti-EPA bill, all 24 Republican members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee rejected a Democrat's proposed amendment that would have declared that Congress accepts greenhouse gas emissions are causing climate change.

In their fiscal year 2015 budget released last week, House Republicans also proposed overall cuts to federal climate change spending.
