Seattle-based Fox News Channel reporter Dan Springer recently covered the opposition I-732 has attracted from several environmental groups. Watch his report.
Springer mentions that I-732 was recently endorsed by Audubon Washington. “We are thrilled to have Audubon Washington, an organization with a steadfast commitment to conservation and environmental protection, supporting the Yes on I-732 campaign,” said Joe Ryan, campaign co-chair. “Audubon has been at the forefront of research and awareness related to the devastation global warming will have on birds and other wildlife. The clear human impact of increased drought, wildfires, sea level rise, and other damaging impacts of climate change underscores the moral urgency to take climate action now. We are eager to work together to pass I-732.”
Sightline Institute, a sustainability think tank, has addressed the criticisms by I-732’s opponents. Their conclusion: “. . . for us at Sightline, and judged exclusively on the basis of policy, not politics or political strategy, the policy’s flaws are cause for concern but are dwarfed by I-732’s potential benefits.”
