Climate to be 2014 battlefield
Posted: 1/3/2014 |
Climate change and energy will be a major policy battleground in the 2014 midterms, advocates on both sides of the issue promise.
Republicans like Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) plan to go on the attack against President Obama’s climate action plan, which they have dubbed a “war on coal.” They’re backed by conservative groups like the American Energy Alliance, which is already airing campaign ads attacking Democrats such as Rep. Nick Rahall (W.Va.) for supporting a carbon tax.
