I agree with your concerns over climate change, that we best act sooner than later if the data about rising sea temperatures and melting glaciers warrant our prompt action.
I agree with you that our regulatory systems have grown too onerous for small enterprises, and the sheer volume of regulations can stifle much needed innovation and productivity.
However, I am not ready to support any extreme rollback of our environmental regulations until after we better understand the impact it would have on our most vulnerable resources.
I invite you to explore with me how we can better measure the impacts our regulations now have, compared to areas already rolling back such regulations.
However, I am concerned about reports I hear of how environmental scientists are being pressured into a “scientific” consensus that ignores a more nuanced interpretation of the available data. I sense a bias toward more government interventions that ignores alternatives.
I invite you to mutually balance your respect for the environment with respect for everyone’s right to provide for themselves with minimal government interference.
