On October 4, the bipartisan House Climate Solutions Caucus hit a record 60 members, with the addition of Representatives Mimi Walters (R-CA-45) and Pete Aguilar (D-CA-31). The Caucus requires new members to join in pairs from both sides of the aisle. The “Noah’s Ark” caucus, which showcases the developing bipartisan support for action against the effects of climate change, is known as one of the fastest growing caucuses in the House of Representatives.
Representatives Ted Deutch (D-FL-22) and Carlos Curbelo (R-FL-26) co-founded the Climate Solutions Caucus in February 2016. The mission of the Caucus is to educate members on economically-viable options to reduce climate risk and to develop bipartisan policy solutions that address the causes, effects and challenges of changing climate and extreme weather.
