This isn’t the first time it has happened. As conservatives, our failure to adequately put forth a solution to a modern-day challenge has resulted in a disastrous policy. This time, it’s climate change, and the outcome will stifle economic growth.

Miami, of all places, might be most aware of rising sea levels and the risk of increasing storm intensity. But what’s a conservative to do? Accept a future of shivering or sweating in the dark depending on the season? Join the apocalyptic whine from the environmental left about our sure and imminent demise?

“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.

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.
