NEW YORK, March 15 A group of 17 Republican
members of Congress signed a resolution on Wednesday vowing to
seek "economically viable" ways to combat global warming, a move
that may put them on a collision course with President Donald
Trump who has called climate change a hoax.
The legislation was introduced by three Republican members
of Congress, Elise Stefanik of New York, Carlos Curbelo of
Florida and Ryan Costello of Pennsylvania. It pledges to "study
and address the causes and effects of measured changes to our
global and regional climates" and seek ways to "balance human
activities" that contribute.
