Republican Rep. Tom Reed became the latest lawmaker to sign on to a resolution backed by Rep. Chris Gibson that acknowledges climate change as a problem that needs to be addressed.

Reed’s signing of the resolution was highlighted in an essay released by Brian Webb, the sustainability coordinator for Houghton College, a Christian liberal arts school in Allegany County.

“This resolution recognizes the impacts of climate change and calls for action to reduce further risk by working constructively to create and support economically viable solutions,” Webb wrote in the commentary. “With a focus on American ingenuity and innovation, the resolution seeks to reframe climate change as a commitment to conservative environmental stewardship.”

Reed, who represents a heavily Republican district in western New York along the Pennsylvania border, received a stronger-than-expected challenge in 2012 from Democrat Nate Shinagawa, but handily turned back a challenge in 2014 from Martha Robertson.

In addition to Gibson, Rep. Elise Stefanik, a GOP freshman who represents the North Country House district, has signed onto the climate change resolution All told, 11 House Republicans are backing the Gibson climate change resolution, which calls for the issue to be addressed.
