GOP Candidates Accept Climate Change, Not Keystone Decision
They’ve broken the ice. Jeb Bush says “the climate is changing,” and other presidential hopefuls appear to be melting Republican orthodoxy by acknowledging that the Earth is indeed warming. The new GOP debate seems to center on what, if anything, the government should do about it, with candidates blasting Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL oil pipeline Friday and denouncing his carbon-curbing Clean Power Plan. But it’s believed that the CPP could help the U.S. president wrestle a CO2-limiting deal from 190 nations when they meet in Paris in three weeks for climate talks.
