Apparently there is an effort underway by the Obama Administration to expose and shame members of Congress who are climate change deniers. The group Organizing for Action sent an email this Thursday to supporters, saying it was time to expose members of Congress who deny the science.
In the email, a video mocked GOP politicians who question the science behind climate change theories. “Right now, way too many lawmakers in Washington flat-out refuse to face the facts when it comes to climate change,” Jon Carson, executive director of Organizing for Action wrote. “We’re never going to make real progress on this issue unless members of Congress get serious.”
The video was the first shot across the bow to climate change deniers by Organizing for Action, which had previously made gun control its focus, along with immigration and the budget. But Thursday’s video shows that Obama’s allies have now turned to climate change as a leading political focal point.
Since Obama’s election, opposition to any action on the climate issue has become a major strategy in GOP politics. Some Republicans outright deny that the climate is changing at all, some dispute the notion that it is man-made. Others accept climate science but see some measures to combat it as damaging to the economy.
