Climate Change “Undeniable”

Climate Change “Undeniable”

April 22 is celebrated world-wide as Earth Day and Dr. Jack Heidel, a Republican candidate for US Senate (Nebraska), believes being a conservative means conserving our natural resources and being responsible stewards to the planet.

“The issue of environmental protection or climate change should never have been allowed to become political,” said Heidel. “We all want a healthy environment, now and for future generations.”

“The evidence for man-made global warming from the burning of fossil fuels is proven,” explained Heidel. “Artic sea ice is retreating. The world’s oceans are becoming warmer and more acidic. Long-term scientific climate models for the Midwest project conditions unfavorable for agriculture.”

Jack is an avid bicyclist and enjoys riding rural roads and trails throughout Nebraska.

“The best way to reduce carbon emissions is with a revenue-neutral/refundable carbon tax. This would create an economic incentive for industrial carbon emitters to develop technology for carbon capture and storage,” said Heidel. “American innovation would once again lead the world in solving a major problem.”

“In the meantime, encouraging the expansion of clean, renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and biofuels will reduce our reliance on fossil fuels while making a significant contribution to the well-being of Nebraska’s rural economy.”
