Obama administration pinpoints Republicans famous for climate denial
President Obama’s administration has launched a campaign to shame “climate deniers” in Congress.
The campaign is spearheaded by Organizing for Action, the group that emerged during Obama’s re-election campaign that has tackled gun control, immigration and the budget, according to the UK’s Guardian newspaper. In an email to supporters, the group said that the time has come to target members of Congress who have denied the science supporting the existence of climate change. The email linked to a video mocking Republican lawmakers notorious for denying climate change.
“Right now, way too many lawmakers in Washington flat-out refuse to face the facts when it comes to climate change,” wrote Jon Carson, executive director of Organizing for Action.
