Did you know that our congressional representatives are NOT representing us on Climate Change?
I’m confused. I thought our congressional representatives were supposed to “represent” our beliefs when they vote on initiatives that impact us. If 76% of Americans believe that climate change is caused by man, then why is it that only 41% of the House and 30% of the Senate vote accordingly? That means that over 202 million Americans are represented by climate deniers in Congress.
Say what? Well, maybe the fact that these same climate deniers have received over $73 million dollars from Big Oil might have something to do with it. Hmm.
I like what U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said, “Members of Congress should be accountable to their constituents, not to a fossil fuel industry that uses the threat of unlimited campaign spending to command their silence.”[Source] Want to put faces to names? Check this out.
