To think that the future of our planet conceivably rests in the hands of 240 scientifically illiterate Washington lawmakers and their supporters! Support Obama’s campaign to publicly call out these rogue lawmakers. See below for details.
Don’t miss the short video display of what laughingly passes for Congressional debate on climate change.
Right now, way too many lawmakers in Washington flat-out refuse to face the facts when it comes to climate change.
We’re never going to make real progress on this issue unless members of Congress get serious. Instead, some of them have made a habit of publicly mocking it. We thought it was time to call them out for denying what’s basic science.
The science matters in this. That’s the message way too many people in Washington need to hear right now. In 2011, there were 240 members of Congress who voted to say that climate change is a hoax. Most of them are still around today, and they’re getting away with it—some of them are actually proud of it. They think the whole debate is pretty funny.
If we want to make progress on climate change, we need everyone in Congress on board for a solution. It’s our job to show them there’s a price to pay for being a climate denier.
