Editorial: The new reality on carbon emissions (The Dallas Morning News)

“Exxon Mobil is among the nation’s most conservative companies. Nixon went to China, Clinton worked with Gingrich, Reagan met Gorbachev, and Exxon changed its stripes. It’s time for Congress to face the realities of climate change and get with the carbon-restriction program already embraced by many of the energy companies that would be most affected.”

In response to reporter Mario Moretto’s Dec. 5 story, Gov. Paul LePage is uniquely positioned to lead Maine conservatives on the issue of climate change, regardless of whether he believes it’s human-caused or not. A revenue-neutral “tax swap” is a conservative, free-market approach where every dollar raised through a new tax on carbon would be 100 percent returned to taxpayers. Anything else is a nonstarter for conservatives and an exercise in futility to solve this national, bipartisan issue.

You’re a conservative who thinks it’s time to offer a solution on energy and climate. You’re not alone. Thousands of conservatives like you are ready to enter the competition of ideas, ready to change what we tax, ready to unleash the power of free enterprise. You might be motivated by the hope of tax reform or by the search for an alternative to EPA regulation of CO2 or the by dream of lighting up the world with distributed energy.

In my quest to understand how these two sides can be positively integrated, I stumbled upon former Republican Congressman Bob Inglis from South Carolina. Inglis represents the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (E&EI), a conservative campaign promoting the use of free enterprise to encourage the development and use of alternative energies. I listened to Inglis speak at the Dole Institute of Politics last spring and a few of E&EI’s ideas have stayed on my brain.

When conservative students enter college classrooms, they have a duty to their peers. Liberal professors and syllabi don’t come with warning labels to indicate biases. Conservative students must act as co-professors by, for example, reading beyond the syllabus, injecting new information and perspectives into class discussions, protecting academic freedom on campus, and helping to guide and inspire the politically misguided and uninspired.

Former U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis, a South Carolina Republican who has been crisscrossing Michigan to drum up support for “a conservative, market-based solution” to the challenge of climate change, says the percentage of Republicans who dismiss global warming as “a lot of hooey” is declining rapidly.

Former Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) has found a secret weapon in his battle to change GOP views on climate change: Business students. “If more conservative Republicans heard from business school students that we’ve got a plan, that this is going to work, then they would feel it’s doable,” he said.
