Letter: Inaction on climate change due to money in politics

Inaction on climate change due to money in politics Re: “Paradise climate refugees will need help for years,” “We need to do more about climate change” and “Climate change linked to more destructive fires” (Letters to the Editor): Three letters to the editor in Nov. 20th’s Mercury News mentioned climate changes as an underlying cause of California’s fires, two in reference to a prior letter which had neglected to cite climate (“Sierra’s western slope poised for disaster,” Nov. 16). We need to remember, however, that an underlying reason our government has failed to take action to deal with climate change is the domination of big money contributors and special interests. Until we limit the influence of money in politics, we can expect to see inaction, especially at the federal level, on vital matters such as climate change, health care and common sense gun control. We need to tell our representatives that if they want our votes, they should support effective campaign finance reform.

The New Politics of Climate Change

It was a fine Tuesday, in other words, for the day-to-day climate advocacy of the Democratic Party. And since Democrats also won a majority of state attorney-general slots, it was an even better Tuesday for their power to fight Trump’s climate agenda in court. Democrats also lack an obvious path to near-term power in the Senate, making sweeping climate legislation unlikely. Each is built around what might be called a theory of change: If we only got everyone on board with this plan, then we could finally pass a big climate policy in the United States. This camp has long rallied around the Climate Solutions Caucus, a group of House members that stayed perfectly bipartisan by design: A Democrat could only join the group if he or she convinced a Republican to join too (and vice versa). The caucus has never passed legislation, but it seemed popular, and by last month it could boast 90 members. Curbelo lost his election, and a Democrat will represent his district next year. “This reflects a new and important awareness that we have to do big things about climate.” Yet those same fossil-fuel companies bankrolled the campaign against Washington’s proposed carbon tax. BP dumped $13 million into the state in order to block the measure—even though it claims to support a carbon tax. But American voters have not had the same ardor for the idea, even when they love renewable energy (which carbon taxes will support) and want to regulate carbon emissions (which carbon taxes do).
