While 97% of all climate scientists agree that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are causing rising global temperatures, what does Senator Ron Johnson say? “I absolutely do not believe in the science of man-caused climate change. It’s not proven by any stretch of the imagination.”
Meanwhile, global warming is costing us millions of dollars in disaster relief from more destructive extreme weather. What’s more, he has repeatedly voted to assault clean energy and water while simultaneously backing billions of dollars in subsidies to Big Oil and dirty energy.
Senator Johnson also supports construction of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, an “all risk but no reward” pipeline that would transfer the world’s dirtiest oil right through the American heartland, threatening the air we breathe and the water we drink.
Sign our petition to tell Senator Johnson to accept the reality of climate change and start voting for our health and the environment, not Big Oil.
America is experiencing the effects of climate change as we suffer from increasingly extreme weather and the skyrocketing costs for disaster recovery. As a member of Congress you have the power and the responsibility to take action to curb global warming and protect our planet for future generations.
To slow the effects of climate change, our government needs to be investing in a clean energy future, not in dirty energy projects like the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Please listen to the wisdom of 97% of climate scientists and stand up for our health, our environment, and our future by addressing climate change now.
