That lack of climate focus is almost certainly a sign that aggressive steps to tackle global warming aren’t as controversial as they used to be.

  • “The fact that Republicans were not running against climate change, I think was the single most telling thing in this election,” said Edward Maibach, director of George Mason University’s Center for Climate Change Communication.
