From an Exxon Mobil-funded scientist comes this definitive statement about the role of the oil giant in fostering climate change deniers: “Exxon’s choices have contributed directly to the situation we are in today, a situation that in many ways seems unreal: one where many elected representatives oppose climate action, while China leads the U.S. in wind energy, solar power, [and] economic investment in clean energy.”
Chief among climate deniers is our own U.S. Congressman, Lamar Smith. He is the chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology committee, which oversees the Environmental Protection Agency, and which has a hand in directing federally funded research into human causes of global warming. He fully supported Trump in his decision to exit the Paris Climate Accords.
Please take a look at these two articles. Then contact Lamar to tell him your personal story of how you’re helping with flood relief and of your opposition to his position on climate change research and remediation. You could also ask him where he’s been. He has made no statement of concern about the impact of Hurricane Harvey on our fellow Texans.
