Pete Moe 9-29-2015 Nunes should support environmental protections

Nunes should support environmental protections 

On Sept. 24, Pope Francis addressed a joint session of our Congress with a thrilling and uplifting vision of the future.

One of his major points was protection of the earth and climate. The pope stated, “In Laudato Si’, I call for a courageous and responsible effort to ‘redirect our steps’, and to avert the most serious effects of the environmental deterioration caused by human activity. I am convinced that we can make a difference and I have no doubt that the United States – and this Congress – have an important role to play.”

Immediately after this historic speech, Congressman Devin Nunes was interviewed by NPR. He said, “Everybody here wants to protect the environment. The question is, does global warming really exist? You know, I think that’s still left out there. But in terms of protecting the environment, that’s something Republicans and Democrats all want to do.”

I am very pleased Rep. Nunes wants to protect our environment. The newly introduced Gibson Resolution states that Congress should take action on “mitigating efforts and efforts to balance human activities that have been found to have an impact.” I encourage Rep. Nunes to endorse this Republican-authored and supported resolution.
