Unfortunately, Jim Inhofe continues to be the lone holdout, making him the embarrassment of the Senate. Taking a snowball in to the chamber to prove that it is cold outside and therefore climate change can’t possibly be real—it’s a headline one would expect to see from The Onion, not C-SPAN. The year Jim Inhofe pulled this stunt, 2015, was the hottest year ever recorded—until we broke that record again the very next year.

Abby believes we should direct our efforts toward concrete steps to reverse climate change while at the same time protecting our jobs and our way of life. These steps include increasing the ability to use electric vehicles by investing in more EV charging stations which could remove 11 gigatons of carbon dioxide by 2050, promoting smart thermostats and LED lighting for homes and offices to reduce greenhouse gases, and encouraging landscape designers to not skimp and instead plant coverage on unusable land to reduce atmospheric CO2.

I think climate change is happening, but we should not be spending an exorbitant amount of time, money and resources trying to stop it. America is only one country in the world when you look at the bigger picture. We can only do so much.

Farmers and ranchers will also face additional challenges as climate change brings stronger storms and unexpected heat. In order to support those who protect and feed us, we must determine the most economic and feasible options for slowing climate change. The solutions chosen should consider rural populations, urban populations, individuals, and businesses to ensure the best outcome for the most people.
