A press release from the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County:

Reps. Hultgren and Roskam join bipartisan House Climate Solutions Caucus

 Woodstock, Thursday, May 24 – The McHenry County Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby applauds Rep. Randy Hultgren (R IL – 14) and Rep. Peter Roskam (R IL – 06) for joining the bipartisan House Climate Solutions Caucus, taking Congress one step closer to creating legislation that will reduce the considerable risks posed by climate change.

“We’re thrilled that Congressmen Hultgren and Roskam have stepped up to become leaders in this way on the climate issue,” said Rick Johnson, co-leader of the McHenry CCL chapter.

“By joining the Climate Solutions Caucus, they are sending a message that it’s time to set aside partisan differences and find a way to reduce the heat-trapping emissions that threaten future generations.”

The Climate Solutions Caucus was established in early 2016 by Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) to “serve as an organization to educate members on economically-viable options to reduce climate risk and protect our nation’s economy, security, infrastructure, agriculture, water supply and public safety,” according to documents filed with the Committee on House Administration.

“My state, our nation and our world are blessed with an abundance of resources and natural beauty, and it is our responsibility to be good stewards of creation. Maintaining this gift demands smart, forward-looking solutions,” said Rep. Hultgren.

Rep. Roskam said, “We have one earth and it’s up to all of us to take care of it. Being a good steward of our planet bears great significance. It is incumbent upon each and every one of us to understand the impacts and challenges that come from a changing climate.”

The Climate Solutions Caucus membership consists of equal representation by Democrats and Republicans. Currently, the caucus now has 78 members. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) joined with Rep. Hultgren, and Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) joined the caucus with Rep. Roskam.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a non-partisan advocacy organization with more than 300 chapters in the U.S., works to bridge the political divide on climate change by building support for a national, market-based approach to reduce carbon pollution. Environmental Defenders of McHenry County partners with the McHenry County Citizens’ Climate Lobby, providing support through publicity, media contacts, and tabling events.

  1. So Hultgren & Roskam are now joining the Leftist anthropogenic climate scam – aka; Climate Solutions Caucus.

    I can’t wait to hear their plan(s) as to how they intend to control solar activities, volcanic eruptions,
    forest fires, droughts and various other naturally occurring events.

    Surely they will be recipients of the Nobel Prize for their combined intellectual efforts.

    With all the many more urgent problems that afflict Illinois, should not their attention be better
    put to use solving those problems first ?

  2. Hilarious.

    Randy thinks the earth is 6,000 years old.

    I’m sure his input will be based on scientific data and nothing else.

  3. All politician are useful idiots. This story completely proves it. While we are being poisoned like rats daily, these knuckleheads are jumping on the climate change train. Thank you for commenting, HonestAbe. I wasn’t going to say anything because it so sickened me to read this article. You give me hope that not everyone is a completely indoctrinated brainwashed moron.

  4. @Cindy,
    They are nothing more than useful idiots who have far to much control
    over our lives, and it sickens me too. On this we can agree. GBA.
