Rep. Scott Peters’ Statement On Rep. Gibson’s Climate Resolution

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (D-CA-52) released the following statement after Representative Chris Gibson (R-NY-19) introduced a resolution which affirms that we must act to address climate change. The resolution is supported by 10 Republicans.

“Acting to prepare communities for a changing climate, while we simultaneously work to stop the underlying causes, has long been bipartisan outside of Congress; Congressman Gibson’s resolution is a welcome sight to those of us who know we need broad support if we are to make substantive policy changes.

“We must develop creative solutions to climate change so we can leave the planet for our children better than we received it. I look forward to working with any Member of Congress wanting to take action on climate change, and hope that more Republicans will join Congressman Gibson in this effort.”

Congressman Peters is a member of the House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC), where he serves as Chair of the Climate Task Force. He is also an active member on the House Safe Climate Caucus.
