VICE News Features CCL
In early February, a reporter and camera crew from VICE News covered CCL’s Conservative Climate Lobby Day. Their report was posted online this week, and it prominently features CCL’s conservative volunteers and our advocacy for carbon pricing. They represent a growing number of conservatives who worry that the Republican party is losing ground on the issue of #climatechange.
One of the participants, 22-year-old Jacob Abel, told VICE News that the party might lose young people like himself if it doesn’t lead more on climate policy.
“I think that's why they're starting to move on it more now because they see the writing on the wall. This is an important issue for people who are my age. They want to see climate change addressed. They want conservative Republican solutions for it. So if they don't adjust to it, I think they will lose voters.”
