Republican CCLer Testifies To Senate

Average Rating:

In July 2019, a Senate climate committee invited several Republicans to a hearing to share their thoughts on climate change. One of those Republicans was CCL volunteer Nick Huey.

Watch and share clips of Nick’s powerful testimony on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Interesting testimony he is giving to Democrats: He is speaking to the Senate Democrats' Special Committee on the Climate Crisis. Has he also asked Republican legislators to join the Far Middle for radical collaboration? I'll check him out online.

Hi Anna! He was invited by this Democratic committee to speak. I'm sure if invited by Republicans, he would be happy to share a similar message. As a CCL volunteer, Nick does lobby legislators who represent him, regardless of party.

Mr Huey notes early in his comments that "it was so nice to find a place where we can talk about gays and guns without judgment".  I will note in return that, first, his statement presupposes that gay people are not eligible to be part of his Radical Middle (as objects, we are something to be talked about, not with), and, second, that using CCL meetings to freely share opinions about "gays" contradicts our Value of Focus (see the first entry of the page  

I would not recommend showing this video to somebody from the LGBT community if I wanted them to feel comfortable coming to a CCL meeting.

Nick, I thank you for your passion and concern. The tension and stress created by this era of partisanship is difficult no matter the political affiliation.    Larry P
