Conservatives start to argue that people living in coastal communities should look seriously at climate change now
William Murray (R Street Institute, energy policy) argues that conservatives and libertarians can work on the climate change issue by working first with people who live in coastal communities.
People who live in red or purple states with extensive low-lying coastal communities (especially the Gulf Coast) would be politically supportive of work trying to reverse the rate of climate change and would accept the science, he argues.
He also argues for stronger building codes in coastal areas, such as the house that survived in Mexico Beach.
