Words: Thompson is skeptical that global warming is caused primarily by human behavior and suggests that Earth’s warming is the result of solar activity. He vaguely supports conservation. “Each of us is put on Earth for a limited period of time. We must always strive to ensure that the resources we use to lead our lives are here for future generations to enjoy and use as well.”
Actions: Thompson voted FOR cutting funds for road-building near National Forests (1997), FOR transportation demo projects, FOR increased funding for forest service roads and habitat management (1999), and FOR confirming Gale Norton as Secretary of the Interior (2001).
