The Republican Platform Once Tried To Fight Climate Change.

The stark difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump on climate change is now well known. Secretary Clinton said climate change is one of the most urgent threats of our time, and we have no choice but to rise and meet it. On the other hand, Mr. Trump has said that climate change is a hoax.

.

Similarly, the Democratic platform and Republican platform are practically opposites of each other. The Democratic platform calls climate change a defining challenge of our time and supports using every tool available to reduce emissions now. The Republican platform dismissively claims that environmental extremists in the Democratic Party are working to sustain the illusion of an environmental crisis.

.

Just as remarkable as the partisan difference on climate change is just how far the Republican Party has moved itself over the past eight years on the issue. The 2008 Republican platform acknowledged that human activity had increased the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and that common sense dictates that the United States should take measured and reasonable steps. The platform went on to say that Republicans support technology-driven, market-based solutions that will decrease emissions and mitigate the impact of climate change where it occurs. A Republican uttering these words today would likely be seen as a liberal pariah by their party.

.

In 2016, that call for reducing emissions is gone and replaced with policy ultimatums that would make it very difficult to cut emissions. The Republican platform proposes to forbid the EPA to regulate carbon dioxide. Contrary to the call for market-based solutions in 2008, the 2016 platform opposes any carbon tax and promises to do away with the Clean Power Plan. According to the national association representing state environmental agencies, the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan encourages and provides for the adoption of market-based approaches to control and reduce carbon pollution.

.

To be sure, the GOP platforms in both 2008 and 2016 explicitly support oil and coal by proposing to increase production and easing permitting requirements. But the support is framed extremely differently in the two platforms. In 2008, the GOP said that In the long run, American production should move to zero-emission sources, and our nation’s fossil fuel resources are the bridge to that emissions-free future. That platform also stated that the party would aggressively support technological advances to reduce our petroleum dependence¬† even supporting the doubling of the gas mileage of cars and trucks and favorably mentioning electric vehicles as a way to usher in a renaissance in the American auto industry. In 2016, the platform is silent on the nations oil dependence, the need to reduce emissions, or on viable alternatives to oil.
