Draft summary for the individual at Wikipedia

Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes acknowledged that the climate is changing and that humans play a role (1). In 2016, he voted against SB 32, which mandates an 80% reduction in California’s greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (2). Regardless of his previous opposition to carbon reduction, in 2017 Mayes became an "unexpected ally" in working with Democrats on extending the cap-and-trade program (3). He argued "[Now that the reduction goals have been set, Republicans] can either decide to not engage and let it be really bad for our economy and the people of California, or we can engage and say we’re going to protect the environment and make sure that California is a place we can still afford to live in. (4)"

1. What are the individual's views on whether climate change is real and caused by human activity?

Chad Mayes acknowledged that the climate is changing and that humans play a role when asked about the impacts of global warming in an interview. (Sammy Roth, "Republicans in California say they're ready to work on climate change. Should Democrats take them seriously?" May 5, 2017. http://www.desertsun.com/story/news/environment/2017/05/05/republicans-california-say-theyre-ready-work-climate-change/310421001/)

2. What votes, actions, and governmental/organizational activities on climate change and clean energy has the individual led/supported/opposed?

During the 2015-2016 legislative session, Chad Mayes voted against SB 32 and SB 350, both of which strengthened California’s greenhouse gas reduction goals.

Regardless of his previous opposition to carbon reduction, in 2017 the Assembly Republican leader became an "unexpected ally" in working with Democrats on extending the cap-and-trade program, which requires Californian companies to buy permits to release emissions into the atmosphere. (Chris Megerian, "The fight against climate change in California gains an unlikely ally: Republicans," LA Times, April 27, 2017. http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-sac-republican-climate-change-20170427-story.html). He argued "[Now that the reduction goals have been set, Republicans] can either decide to not engage and let it be really bad for our economy and the people of California, or we can engage and say we’re going to protect the environment and make sure that California is a place we can still afford to live in." (Jessica Mendoza, "Why some Republicans are warming to climate action," May 23, 2017. https://www.csmonitor.com/Environment/2017/0523/Why-some-Republicans-are-warming-to-climate-action) Mayes believes cap-and-trade is the preferred framework because "as a Republican, I believe a market-based system is always better than command and control."
