La Resolución Republicana sobre el Clima

Republican Climate Resolution

“Podemos y debemos tomar acción responsable y significativa ahora mismo”

Miembros republicanos de la Cámara de Representantes han presentado la Resolución Republicana del Clima, que respalda la necesidad de tomar acción para abordar al cambio climático.

Acerca de la Resolución Republicana sobre el Clima

La Resolución (H.Res.195) fue presentada por un grupo de 20 Representantes Republicanos, liderados por los Representantes Elise Stefanik, Carlos Curbelo, y Ryan Costello. La resolución invoca el principio conservador “proteger, conservar, y cuidar bien nuestro ambiente; planificar responsablemente para todos los factores del mercado, y basar nuestras decisiones políticas en la ciencia y hechos cuantificables y concretos.”

La resolución declara,

“Si no lo abordamos, las consecuencias del cambio climático tienen la posibilidad de impactar negativamente a todos los Americanos.”

Y concluye que la Cámara debería comprometerse a

“trabajar de forma constructiva, usando nuestra tradición americana de ingenio, innovación y excepcionalismo para crear y apoyar soluciones públicas y privadas que sean viables económicamente y apoyadas ampliamente, para estudiar y abordar las causas y efectos de los cambios medidos a nuestros climas globales y regionales, incluyendo esfuerzas para mitigar y equilibrar las actividades humanas que se han demostrado tener un impacto.”

Respuesta de CCL a la Resolución

“Los riesgos del cambio climático son demasiado grandes para atascarnos en la política partidaria,” dijo Mark Reynolds, el Director Ejecutivo de Ciudadanos por un Clima Vivible. “Con esta resolución, estos republicanos están diciendo que cuando se trata de dejar un mundo habitable para las generaciones futuras, la normalidad no es aceptable.”


EL TEXTO DE LA RESOLUCIÓN H. Res. 195

Expressing the commitment of the House of Representatives to conservative environmental stewardship.

Whereas it is a conservative principle to protect, conserve, and be good stewards of our environment, responsibly plan for all market factors, and base our policy decisions in science and quantifiable facts on the ground;

Whereas prudent, fact-based stewardship of our economy and our environment is a critical responsibility for all Americans in order to ensure that we preserve our great Nation for future generations;

Whereas there has been a marked increase in extreme weather events across the United States, including more frequent heat waves, extreme precipitation, wildfires, and water scarcity;

Whereas this has had noticeable, negative impacts that are expected to worsen in every region of the United States and its territories, including, among other significant weather events and environmental disruptions, longer and hotter heat waves, more severe storms, worsening flood and drought cycles, growing invasive species and insect problems, threatened native plant and wildlife populations, rising sea levels, and, when combined with a lack of proper forest management, increased wildfire risk;

Whereas increased pollutants and other factors contribute to local, regional, and national environmental and human health impacts, including increased mercury in the fish we eat, elevated asthma attacks in our children, acid rain, smog, degraded water quality, urban heat islands, and rapid storm water runoff that leads to costly infrastructure projects;

Whereas the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review states that the effects of a changing climate are “threat multipliers that will aggravate stressors abroad such as poverty, environmental degradation, political instability, and social tensions”;

Whereas, if left unaddressed, the consequences of a changing climate have the potential to adversely impact all Americans, hitting vulnerable populations hardest, harming productivity in key economic sectors such as construction, agriculture, and tourism, saddling future generations with costly economic and environmental burdens, and imposing additional costs on State and Federal budgets that will further add to the long-term fiscal challenges that we face as a Nation;

Whereas any efforts to mitigate the risks of, prepare for, or otherwise address our changing climate and its effects should not constrain the United States economy, especially in regards to global competitiveness; and

Whereas there is increasing recognition that we can and must take meaningful and responsible action now to address this issue: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives commits to working constructively, using our tradition of American ingenuity, innovation, and exceptionalism, to create and support economically viable, and broadly supported private and public solutions to study and address the causes and effects of measured changes to our global and regional climates, including mitigation efforts and efforts to balance human activities that have been found to have an impact.
