Conservatives Drew Bond and John Hart are launching C3 Solutions , an advocacy organization focused on conservative clean energy and climate change solutions.
Hart previously was the late Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn’s communications director and Bond served as chief of staff at the Heritage Foundation.
Former Republican presidential contender and Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and American Enterprise Institute resident scholar Yuval Levin are among the names on the coalition’s advisory board.
The coalition comes as polling suggests a shift among younger Republicans toward government action on climate change.
“We’re at a pivotal moment. Younger generations are looking for leadership and conservatives need to step up and provide solutions,” Hart said in a statement. “Progressive solutions like the Green New Deal would lead to economic deforestation while doing nothing to protect our natural environment.”
