CRES Responds to First Republican Primary Debate

MILWAUKEE – Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) President Heather Reams released the following statement in response to the first Republican primary debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin:

“I’m glad to see real issues addressed tonight—America’s energy security and climate change were front and center at tonight’s Republican debate,” said CRES President Heather Reams. “Governor Nikki Haley and Senator Tim Scott rightfully pointed to the need for the United States to leverage our carbon advantage in our mission to reduce global emissions and combat the impacts of climate change. Governor Doug Burgum praised American energy production and the importance of an all-of-the-above energy strategy to lower costs and strengthen the U.S. role in creating a cleaner future.”

Reams concluded, “Nationwide CRES Forum polling found 81 percent of Republican voters aged 18-44 believe climate change is a threat and action should be taken to address it. Any Republican presidential candidate who wants to be taken seriously must acknowledge climate change and outline their plan to promote affordable, reliable, and clean American energy.”
