Sign of change?

Posted by Barbara Gottlieb on March 4, 2016

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have formed a bipartisan caucus to seek solutions on climate change.

At a time when some members of Congress are still denying that climate change is real and human-made, and when electoral politics have further embittered the already-toxic relations between the parties, the idea that there can be a bipartisan group addressing climate change is like the coming of spring.

The group is still small, but it continues to grow – not one by one, mind you, but two by two:  New members have to enter in pairs, one Democrat and one Republican joining simultaneously.  That way the group maintains partisan parity.

They’re calling it the Noah's Ark method.

The caucus includes heavy representation from the Florida congressional delegation.  South Florida is at risk from rising sea levels.

Of course, winter isn’t quite over, and we could still get hit by some late snows.  But the promise of a thaw, and of an eventual flowering, is so, so welcome.
