I expected to hear President Obama speak in support of action on climate change during his Earth Day visit to the Florida Everglades. That’s pretty much the party line.
But what a breath of fresh air it was to actually hear a Republican who is ready to take a stand in support of climate action. I tip my hat to U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo for showing real leadership and the courage to rise above partisan party politics, putting the interests of his constituents and this nation first. If only more Republicans were like that. One can only hope!
