Non-Binding Anonymous Conscience Vote

A story from This American Life implied that there are several Republican House members that are secretly supporters of efforts to tackle Climate Change.....  What about a Non-Binding Anonymous Conscience Vote then?  Would it help move the issue forward if everyone voted their conscience on issue without fear of reprisal or commitment?

Preliminary Rules:

1) The House Minority Leader or official equivalent may call for a "Non-Binding Anonymous Conscience Vote" on any issue (a limited number of times).  The votes will be cast anonymously.

2) No House member may be allowed to indicate or convey in any manner how they voted.
