Records show Reagan, Bush 41 favored climate change action

While both Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush's administrations wanted action on global warming and climate, records show, today's leading GOP ideologues want nothing to do with it: 
The assertive posture contrasts with the positions taken this week by leading Republican presidential contenders, several of whom publicly mocked Obama’s efforts to secure an international climate treaty in Paris. The GOP-controlled House voted Tuesday to block the administration’s signature regulation to cut greenhouse-gas pollution from U.S. power plants.
