“Heather Reams also is concerned about climate change but her politics are more conservative and market-focused. She heads the group Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions.

“If you’re going to put taxpayer money some place, put it where you’re going to get a good return and that is in clean energy,” says Reams. She says there are bills in Congress that could become stimulus programs, even with an administration that shows little interest in climate change.
