Democratic candidates are unveiling plans for the environment and climate change that fall between "pandering to the extreme left, and ignorance" and "a little bit of both," Sen. Kevin Cramer said Wednesday, while panning Sen. Elizabeth Warren's calls to revoke permits for the Dakota Access and the Keystone XL pipelines on tribal lands.
"Just when you thought it couldn't get crazier after what Sen. Warren said, you could always count on Bernie Sanders to up the ante," the North Dakota Republican said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "The reality is that fossil fuels and all generations, all types of energy production are important, and it's good for the economy, and job creation."
There is a growing demand to address climate change, and Cramer said there are solutions to handle the issues from both sides of the aisle, including working on appropriate credits and other methods."
"Obviously, North Dakota is a clean energy state as well as a fossil fuel state," he said.
Instead of extreme measures, Cramer said he'd urge everyone to look for the middle ground, as people do want a solution on climate change.
"We may argue about the extent of climate change, and how existential it is, and whose fault it is, and to what degree it's people's fault, but people do want a solution and I think we could find that if we work together on solutions," said Cramer. "There is some stuff going on. We just have to get past the noise."
