The Hill

The Republican Party is “falling away from scientific opinion” on climate change, a former GOP lawmaker said Thursday.

“I believe that my party, the Republican Party, needs to do a much better job of making sure that we are examining the science,” Mike Castle, who served as governor and congressman in Delaware, said at a Washington, D.C., event hosted by Climate Desk.

Castle, who served as Delaware’s at-large representative from 1993 until 2011, added, “It’s been a little bit of an overreaction of rejection of what probably is true science. Maybe it’s not 100 percent science, but it’s true science and indeed the country can advance more if we would pay attention to that.”
