    Young Republican Breakaways To Fight Climate Change

    Almost 60 percent of millennial Republicans agree that climate change is already having some effect on the US, according to Pew Research polling.

Thousands of people are set to perish in heatwaves…The US Government Accountability Office calculates climate impacts cost the federal government $350 billion in the past decade, with economic losses on course to hit $500 billion every year by the close of the century…There’s a realization on both sides, however, that the Green New Deal and growing public concern has cracked open the debate…” click here for more
