Kansas House takes up measure to oppose Obama’s climate change plan
The nonbinding resolution is before the House Energy and Environment Committee. It declares that the federal goals for addressing climate change are based on false assumptions about the role of carbon dioxide and human activity.
Environmentalists argue that the resolution is based on bad science and ignores data that emissions and humans are altering sea levels and weather patterns.
The resolution cites Obama’s 2013 plan that calls for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and encourages development of renewable forms of energy.
